In order to ensure that all correct documentation is used, we ask that you use the form available from the office, when making a request for the administration of medication to your child. This form must be filled out by you in order for us to act on your behalf. Any parent/caregiver who has authorized us to administer medication should fill out a new form as soon as possible. This includes those who take regular medication and those who require occasional treatment (e.g. in case of bee stings). All medications and forms will be kept in a secure area at the office. At no time should medication remain in the possession of a child, except in the case of asthma puffers.
A copy of the Medication form is available
A copy of the Paracetamol authority form is also available
Thank you for your understanding in this matter. Further information regarding our Medication Policy is available in the Parent Handbook. Please feel free to contact the office if you have any queries or questions.
