How does the school manage medicines through the day?

How does the school manage medicines during the school day?

  • The school has a policy outlining the management of medicines at school which can be found on the school’s website on our Policies page.
  • If a child requires medicine, then a form must be completed by the parent/carer to give school permission to administer. This form can also be found on the school website.  
  • Staff who work in school are trained annually in dealing with asthma and are taught how to administer an epipen. Additional training is given to staff, where necessary, to enable them to manage an individual’s medical conditions.
