Illness and Medication

We expect children to be in school if they are well enough to be here. If your child has a cough or a cold, they are usually just as well attending school as not and we would encourage you to send them to school if you can.

If a child has a sickness bug, they should remain at home until 48 hours after the last bout of sickness.

We are happy to support parents and carers in the administration of necessary and prescribed medicines. If your child needs medication during the school day, please come to the office and complete an administration of medicines form, detailing the dosage and frequency. This form will be signed by a member of staff upon administration and you may view this at the end of the school day.

If your child needs a longer term medical plan, then please discuss this with a senior member of staff at school.
