We do not administer medicine at school – if your child needs medicine, please let the doctor know so that they can adjust the dose accordingly. Otherwise, please make arrangements for yourself or another responsible adult to come to school at lunchtime (if appropriate) to administer the medicine. On a similar note children are not allowed to bring cough sweets or similar to take on their own.
In cases where children have special medical needs e.g. asthma or allergies, parents/carers should ensure the school are made aware. Miss Turl and Mrs Kingham meet with parents to write individualised care plans so medical needs are not a barrier to learning.
We request you make any medical appointments outside the school day. If you have no option than to take your child to an appointment during the school day, please contact the office detailing the appointment date and the time you will be collecting your child and when they will return. On the day of the appointment please go to the office to collect your child and not to the classroom door.
