School policies cover many aspects of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you would like to know our policy on something that is not listed, please ask the school office.
In line with DFE guidance, only prescribed medicines will be administered in school. Wherever possible parents should accept the administration of medicine as their responsibility but, if it is unavoidable that a child should take medicine in school, then the following must apply:
- The medicine must be in its original pharmacy container and must be clearly labelled by the pharmacy with the child’s name and dose
- Medicines must be handed in to the school office (NOT the class teacher), where the necessary consent forms should be completed and signed
- Medicines will be stored securely in the staffroom fridge or the office, and should be collected by an adult at the end of the day
Asthma inhalers should be kept in class where they are easily accessible. If your child has an inhaler or an epi-pen, please ensure that these are within their ‘use by’ dates.
