Administering Medicine Form

Children may need to have medication administered during the school day, on a short term or a longer term basis. 

 

Obviously, it is important that school is completely aware of the needs of the child, the doses of medication to be administered and any possible side effects to look for.

 

Whenever possible, children should be encouraged to administer their medication themselves, under adult supervision.

The school will not give your child medicine unless it is in accordance with our First Aid and Medical Care Policy.  The school can refuse to administer medication and arrange alternative measures with the parent to ensure the child receives the medicine required.

 

If required, please print the form, complete and return  to the school office.
