Children's Health and Administration of Medicines

Administration of Medicines

If your child needs to take medicine at school, this is usually antibiotics that need to be administered FOUR times a day, we will support with this but you will need complete an indemnity form, please.  All medicines need to be presented in the original packaging with the child’s name and dose listed.  We are unable to support with the administration of any medicines without a completed indemnity form.  All medicines, except inhalers, are kept in the staffroom.  

Please click Administration of Medicines Form to complete the form to provide consent your medication to be administered to your child in School.  Once the form has been completed, please contact the office by telephone or email to notify them.
