It is preferable that no medicines come into school. However, there are exceptional circumstances. If your child needs to take any medicine, please inform the Headteacher. Parents who wish prescribed medicines to be administered to their child at school, must give written permission for this to be done. Please note that only prescribed medication which is to be taken more than 3 times a day will be administered at school.

Medicines and tablets must be given to the Headteacher and kept in the medicine cupboard or fridge in the medical room. Medicines should be clearly labeled with contents, owner’s name and dosage.

Please ensure that the school is aware of any medical conditions and allergies from which your child may suffer.
