Pupils who are unwell should not be sent to school. However, the staff will administer medicines to those children who: •Have a chronic illness or allergy •Are completing a course of prescribed medicines which requires administering four times a day
Inhalers brought into school should be clearly marked with the child’s name. These are kept in the first aid cupboard and the child(ren) informed that they can be used whenever needed. Parents must complete an authorisation form. These can be obtained from the office.
All medicine should be handed into school in a one dose syringe or packet. We cannot administer from a bottle.
