Medicines in school
Medicines in School
Staff do not give medicine unless a child has a chronic illness or condition and is dependent on medication. If you need us to hold and give medication under these circumstances there is a form you will need to fill in, which can be found below or obtained from the office and then signed by the Office Manager. If the doctor prescribes an antibiotic, the child should remain at home until the course of treatment is completed. If you are in any doubt please ring the school before you set off.
Drinks, sweets, crisps or biscuits should not be brought to school as they could be shared, unknown to the staff, with other children who may have an allergy, be on a special diet for medical reasons, or whose religion or culture prohibits certain foods.
