Medicine in School
Children with medical needs have the same rights of admission to a school or setting as other children. Most children will at some time have short-term medical needs, perhaps finishing a course of medicine such as antibiotics. Some children however have longer term medical needs and may require medicines on a long-term basis to keep them well, for example children who may require ashtma pumps or epi-pens.
Where possible we prefer that children are given medication before and after school by their parents – where this is not possible we need you to give the school details of the child’s condition and the medicine they require – we also need your permission to administer the medication.
