Where parents are unable to administer medicines, specified staff will do so, but parents must complete a form from the office to provide full instructions for administration. Parents may come to school to administer medicine; arrangements for this must be organised at the school office. Any controlled drugs which have been prescribed for a child are kept in a fixed locked cupboard in the Medical Room, except where pupils manage their own medication or where the medicine has to be kept in the fridge (antibiotics). The fridge will be in a place where children do not have access (staffroom). (See Administration of Medicines Policy on the school website for further details).
The school has a list of all children who have asthma so that all staff are fully aware of these children. Children requiring inhalers should have them in school at all times, named and marked, and are themselves responsible for the administration of them whenever they feel it is appropriate (See Asthma and Allergies Policy on the school website for further details).
