Medicines in school

Where children are unwell and not fit to be in school, and where they are still suffering from an infection which may be passed to others, children should remain at home to be cared for and looked after.

We are committed to ensuring that children return to school as soon as possible after an illness, (subject to the health and safety of the school community) and that children with chronic health needs are supported at school. Parents of children in need of medication must ensure that the school is accurately advised about the medication, its usage and administration. Parents must complete the Medication Request form (available from the office) before a medicine can be administered by staff.
