Medicines in School

Recent government legislation means there have been changes to the way we handle medicines in school.

We are no longer able to give any medication to students (eg, painkillers for period pains/headaches) without them being prescribed by a doctor.

Any medicines that need to be brought into school for use by students during the day must be brought by their parents and handed to our trained staff in reception where paperwork will need to be completed. The medicines need to be in the original packaging with the dispensing label on it including dosage and the students’ name.

We cannot accept medicines from the students themselves.

Rest assured we will continue to care for our students if they become unwell and stay in close contact with parents.
