Administration of Medicines and Personal Care

  • We have a policy regarding the administration and management of medicines on the school site
  • Parents need to inform the school in writing if medication is recommended by Health Professionals to be taken during the school day
  • The school’s administrative staff administer medicines. If a child requires medication in school, this will be administered by one member of staff and witnessed by a second. A record is kept and signed by both members of staff
  • Staff have regular training regarding conditions and medication affecting individual students so that trained staff can manage medical situations if the need arises
