Medical Conditions and Allergy Information
If your child has an allergy or medical condition of any description you must tell us. Please do not presume we know.
It is important that you inform the school office if your child has any serious medical conditions or allergies giving as much information as possible. It is also important that you keep us updated on changes so that we can keep out records up to date.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding medical conditions, allergies, inhalers, epipens or medicine administration please speak to either the class teacher of the school office.
Inhalers and Epipens
Administering ‘Short Course’ Medication to Children in School
If at all possible we ask that parents /carers come to school to administer medication. In certain circumstances, and normally where the required doseage is four times a day, it is possible for school to do this. School can only administer tablets or medicine to pupils where they are prescribed by a doctor or dentist.
In order for school to administer medicine parents/carers must fill in a Parental Agreement Form giving consent and specifying doseage and frequency required. Medicines should be taken to the school office and clearly marked with the child’s name.
The school is unable to take responsibility for any medicines left on the premises. Parents are asked to collect medicines from the office at the end of the day.
