Medicines and illness guidance

Please see our medical policy (link below) for guidance on how we support medical conditions in school.

If a child needs medicine administering in school then a form must be completed and brought in to school before any medicine can be given.

If a child has suffered vomiting or diarrhoea they must not attend school for 48 hours following the last incident. If a child suffers from either of the above at school we will phone you and ask for them to be collected to prevent infection to other children. If a child has hair lice (nits) they should not attend school until hair has been treated. If your child has a contagious infection such as impetigo you must take advice from your doctor as to when they can return.

Form to allow administration of medicines in school. Please download and complete, or ask for a form from the office. We cannot administer any medication without this being completed.
