Medications in School

If your child needs medication during school hours, you MUST complete a form which states what medicines are to be given and for how long. The forms can be downloaded and printed using the links below. NB. If you're child requires medication for asthma Form 4 must be provided in addition to either Form 2 or Form 3. Completed forms should be handed in to the school office with the required medication. 

For safety reasons, no medications (other than self-administered inhalers) should be kept in the children's schoolbags and adults should hand the medication to the office. All medications must be in a container with the child's name, class and dosage clearly marked on the outside. Inhalers should be similarly marked, even if being stored in their child's schoolbag.

Please note, it is the parent's responsibility to ensure that all medication kept in school is within its expiry date.
