Medicines in School
School class staff are not allowed to give children medicines. However, where children need long-term medication, for example, asthma inhalers or drugs controlling long-term illnesses, we have qualified paediatric first aiders and staff with specific training to oversee the administration of medicines. To enable us to do this, we need written permission from you and details of its administration from your doctor. If you feel that your child suffers from any condition which will affect him/her in school, please let us know so that we can make the necessary arrangements.
Antibiotics, cough medicines and paracetamol should be given at home.
