The following guidance comes from the ‘Supporting Pupils with Medical conditions Policy’; a link to this can be found in the policies section of this website.
If a child needs to bring medication to school, this should only be a sufficient quantity to last no more than two weeks, i.e. not a full bottle of tablets. Immediately on arrival at school, this should be handed to the school office, together with written consent/instructions from a parent/carer detailing the child’s name, the date, the name of the medication, the reason the medicine is prescribed, the exact dosage, how and when medicine is to be given, the expiry date of the medication and any other special instructions.
NB: Medicine must be in the original container as dispensed by the pharmacy and include the prescribers instructions for administration.
We are not allowed to administer ibuprofen to any pupils.
