Medicines

 

  • Where possible, we expect medicines to be prescribed in dose frequencies which enable them to be taken outside school hours.

 

  • All medication must be handed in to the school office by a parent/carer, and a consent form signed.

 

  • We will only accept prescribed medicines if they are:
    • labelled and in date
    • provided in their original container as dispensed by the pharmacist
    • include instructions for administration

 

  • At our school we will administer non-prescription medicines on written request from the parent if they are in clearly identifiable packaging and only on a short-term basis.

 

  • We will never administer medicine containing aspirin unless prescribed by a doctor

 

  • When no longer required, medicines will be returned to parents for safe disposal
