Teachers and staff are not permitted to administer medication to children. In exceptional cases the Headteacher and/or Administrative Officer might agree to a parents request, if a consent form has been signed. Children with diagnosed asthma must have an inhaler available in school. It is our policy that children manage their own asthma so inhalers are kept in the appropriate classrooms.
In the event of on going medication being needed a Medical Health Care Plan will be drawn up by the school and parents and child where appropriate to ensure that the child can access their medication safely.
