The Governors have carefully considered the administering of medication to children either by teaching or non-teaching staff and have decided that they cannot allow this.  Children are therefore not allowed to bring to school any medication in any form i.e. tablets, medicines or creams.  The only exception to this is asthma inhalers.  If a child is on a course of anti-biotic or other medication parents must work doses around the school day.  If parents wish they may come to school themselves, at lunchtime to administer medication.  If they chose to do this they must inform the school before hand and report to the school office before administering the medication to their child.


If a child suffers from a long term or chronic illness which may require medication or other provision to be made available in school, parents must inform the school immediately and decisions will be taken on how to cater for the child’s individual needs.
