We would like to inform parents of our requirements for students taking Prescription medication in school. You may have previously consented to Paracetamol (data booklet when your child joins the school), if your child needs to take any other medication please complete the medication form, and ask them to take the medication to the school nurse.
The prescribed medication should only be taken by the named person prescribed by their GP or Hospital Doctor.
All prescribed medication should be in its original box with the pharmacy label on. This medication then needs to be handed to the School Welfare Office. It will be locked away and kept safe for your child to take their medication in the Student Welfare Room at the advised times and dosage required. A record will be kept of each dose given to your child.
Medicines can be harmful to anyone for whom they are not prescribed and we recognise that it is our duty to ensure that the risks to the health of others are properly controlled.
A form will need to be completed for each prescribed medication item.
For further information please read our Medical Welfare Policy.
