Medicines at School
The Local Authority ruling is that no medicines can be given by staff members in school because of the possibility that they might be inappropriate, cause a reaction in particular cases, or be improperly given. Parents however are permitted to come into school and administer medicines.
Asthma and allergy related medication can be kept by the school office. Parents are asked to complete necessary forms to ensure proper permissions are given.
Any requests beyond these guidelines should be discussed with the Head Teacher, who may seek advice from the school nurse and/or the Local Authority.
