MEDICINES IN SCHOOL
If your child is receiving medication from your family doctor it is likely that they will be unfit to attend school. Prescribed medicines are not given to children in school other than by special arrangements. A School Medicine Record form must be completed and only medication needing to be taken 4 times or more a day that is prescribed will be administered.
If your child needs an inhaler, please inform the school office who will give you a form so that this can be administered appropriately. The inhaler will be kept in the child’s classroom.
Any medicines should be clearly labelled with the child’s name, correct dosage, the time required and a spoon if necessary.
No medicines should be brought to school by the children.
