Medical Matters

The school works closely with the Healthy Child Team. Every pupil is screened for vision, hearing and general growth in their Reception year. Parents may contact the health team through Mrs Price at school at any time to discuss concerns they may have about their child’s health and development.

Administering Medication in School

Medication should only be taken at school when it is essential and where not to do so would be detrimental to a child’s health.

Whenever possible medication should be taken at home. Parents and carers should seek advice from their medical practitioner on this matter.

  • Staff administering the medication will be trained to ensure all documentation is accurately completed and medication is stored correctly.
  • The school will keep records of training.
