Medical Information

To clarify a few points with medical issues at school:

  • If you wish us to give your child any medication, it can only be done if prescribed by a Doctor and in its original packaging.
  • Any medication will only be administered by Welfare and only if the correct Medical Form is completed.
  • Antibiotics can only be given if they are prescribed for 4 times a day.
  • Vomiting and Diarrhoea – if your child is suffering from either of these or both, they can only return to school 48 hours after the last episode. This is guidance issued by Public Health England which The Health Protection Agency is now part of.
