Medical Information

Please see our policy on supporting pupils with medical needs.

Occasionally you may wish for school to administer medicine to your child. Please bear in mind that there is no legal duty which requires school staff to administer medication; this is a voluntary role.  Medicines should only be taken in school when essential. Where clinically possible, medicines should be prescribed in dose frequencies which enable them to be taken outside school hours. Parents should keep children at home if they are acutely unwell.

Parents will be asked to fill in a consent form and discuss the medicine with Miss Hunt, Mrs Crawley or Miss Critchley.

Please see the consent form. Medicine must be handed to Miss Hunt, Mrs Crawley or Miss Critchley on the first day and may be handed in to the office on subsequent days.
