Medicines/First Aid

This school is an inclusive community that aims to support and welcome pupils with medical conditions.

This school aims to provide all pupils with all medical conditions the same opportunities as others at school. 

The consent of the Head Teacher must be obtained before any medications prescribed by a doctor can be administered in school.

The school’s policy is that medicines required to be taken on a three times per day basis should be given before school, after school and at bedtime.



Any medical issues which fall outside these guidelines must be discussed with the Head Teacher.

Children using asthma inhalers must have an inhaler (clearly labelled with their name) at school at all times and be trained to use it.
