Medicine in school 

It is the responsibility of parents/carers to inform the school of their child’s medical needs before the student joins the school, or as soon as a new medical condition is diagnosed. 

Only medicine prescribed by a GP will be given to learners. The medicine must have a printed label stating your child’s name and the dosage required and at what time the medicine needs to be administered. A Medication form must be completed and given to school staff prior to medication being given to your child, all other medication should be given at home.
