Medicine in School


Please complete the Request for School to Administer Medication form if your child needs to have medication during the school day.  We are not in a position to administer any medication, including pain relief medication, without a completed form.

Most pupils will at some time have a medical condition that may affect their participation in school activities. For many this will be short term; perhaps finishing a course of medication to combat an infection.  Other pupils have medical conditions that, if not properly managed, could limit their access to education. Such pupils are regarded as having health care needs. Most children with health care needs are able to attend school regularly and, with some support from the school can access most school activities.
