If your child is required to take prescription medication during the school day, please note the following procedure:
Obtain the ‘Parent/Carer Agreement for school to administer prescribed medication form’ from the school office or print from the website (click here), complete appropriately and return back to the school office.
Prescription medication must be labeled with the name of the child and their class.
Dosage instructions must be clear.
Prescription medication must be taken to the school office first thing in the morning and collected at the end of the school day. Any prescription medication not collected will be disposed of at the end of each term.
It is your child’s responsibility to come to the medical room to take their prescribed medication at the appropriate time.
It is your responsibility as a parent/carer to ensure the school has updated information regarding any medical conditions or allergies and that prescribed medication, if needed, is supplied to the school.
It is not the school’s responsibility to administer medication that has not been prescribed by a doctor.
