Medicines in School

The administration of medicines, although not compulsory, is part of our inclusive practice.  It is however governed by strict procedures.  Our Policy states that the Headteacher (or his/her nominee) will only administer medicines prescribed by a doctor, or paracetamol/ibuprofen type medication (which are often now not prescribed).

A consent form must be completed by the parent or guardian of the pupil and be delivered personally, together with the medicine, to the Headteacher or to the school office.  For residential trips, we require a separate medication form, we will tell you about this before any residential trip.  The form is available via Supporting Students with Medical Conditions and the Administration of Medicines Policy.

Medicine must be in the original container labelled with its contents, the owner's name, required dosage and the prescribing doctor's name.  No non-prescribed medications will be given.
