Medicines in school

If there are any circumstances (including health problems), which might affect your child, would you please let us know so that we can fully understand your child’s circumstances. Drugs and medicines in school are a complicated issue. Because of this, no child should bring medicines or tablets into school. The only exceptions are when a request is made in person from a parent to the Headteacher. In this case, the parent will be required to record details of the drugs and their administration in our record book.

All drugs are kept in the Office, and we will consider prescribed medicines only. Inhalers are the child’s responsibility.
