Administration of medicines

Administration of medicines

If pupils need to take prescribed medicines during school time, it is important that parents and carers fill in the school form (MED1) with instructions for dispensing the medicine and ensure that it is handed to the secretary for safe keeping, unless the child needs instant access eg. with an inhaler. 

If possible, children must self administer their own medicine under the supervision of a designated adult.  Non-prescribed medicines will not be given.
