Medicines and Illness

Medication

If your child requires prescribed medication during the school day, please contact the school office to discuss your child’s needs and to complete a ‘Consent Form’.  All medication requirements need to be recorded and we are unable to administer any medication without a completed form.  All medication must be brought to and collected from the office by an appropriate adult.

 

Homely Administration of Calpol and Piriton

We keep a supply of each in school and occasionally it may be necessary to administer a homely dose of Calpol or Piriton to your child for headache or insect sting.  We would always contact you by phone beforehand and would only administer the dose after mid-day in case a dose has been administered at home before school.  A ‘ Homely Administration Consent Form’ must have been completed for this dose to be administered.
