Antibiotics, Illness and Other Medicines

The school staff cannot administer medicine to pupils. This is a health and safety regulation. If a child needs a dose of medicine at lunchtime, the parent or another adult must come to school to administer the medicine. Pupils with inhalers should have them at school all the time so that they can use them when necessary. A child with a long-term medical condition requiring special medication will have an Individual Health Plan agreed by both home and school.

Please see the – Should My Child Go to School leaflet if you are unsure whether to send your child to school.
