Medication at School

Medication at School 

School can administer medication to your child during the school day providing we have a completed consent form.   A copy of our medication form can be obtained from the office, or alternatively can found in the documents section below for completion at home and handed in to the school office along with any medication.

Medication Considerations for Parents/Carers  

Medication requirements:-

  • will only be accepted in their original containers
  • must be in date 
  • if dispensed by a pharmacist must be in the name of the child 
  • if obtained over the counter (OTC) such as paracetamol of ibuprofen the medication must be age appropriate 
  • must be handed in and collected by an adult from reception.  Children must not bring in medication and will not be given medication to take home with them

Medication necessity:- 

  • whilst school can administer medication with parent/carer consent, where medication administration times allow, if medication can be given at home please avoid sending medicines into school unnecessarily
