It should be the exception rather than the rule for medicines to be brought into school. It is normally expected that parents/carers administer medicine to their children.
Parents/carers should be advised to request that doctors be asked to prescribe in a way which avoids the need for medicines to be brought into school.
If your child uses an inhaler, please ensure that they carry one at all times. A spare, clearly marked with your child’s name, should be stored with our School Nurse for emergency use.
If your child has an allergy to any food, please make sure the Academy is aware of this. This is especially important if an Epipen is carried. A ‘Medicalert’ bracelet or necklace carrying the information regarding the allergy is allowed but please ensure that the Academy is informed.
