Administration Of Medicines
While no staff member can be compelled to give medical treatment to a pupil/student, it is hoped that the support given through parental consent, the support of the City Council through these guidelines and the help of the School Medical Services will encourage them to see this as part of the pastoral role.
- The Head Teacher (or their nominee) will only administer medicines prescribed by a doctor.
- This form below should be completed by the parent, guardian or person with parental responsibility for the pupil/student and delivered with the medication to Mrs Earnshaw (or a nominated person), before any medicine will be administered.
- The medicine should be in date and clearly labelled with:
- Its contents
- The owner’s name
- Dosage and frequency
- Name of prescribing doctor
The information requested, is in confidence, to ensure that the school is fully aware of the medical needs of your child.
If you would like to discuss any requirements in further detail, please contact Mrs Earnshaw; email@example.com
Where such arrangements fail, it is the parents’ responsibility to make appropriate alternative arrangements.
Year 9 students are now due their important routine childhood vaccinations Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio (DTP) and Meningitis ACWY (MenACWY). We are also alongside this, catching up with all Year 10 pupils who did not receive their vaccinations last academic year due to Coronavirus, any consents received last year are still valid. These will take place in school by our team of qualified nurses.
To consent (or decline) for your child to have this vaccination, please follow the link below. If you are not sure if you consented last year for year 10 pupils, please consent using the same link:
Please read the consent form carefully to ensure you have completed this as accurately as possible.
