Very few medicines need to be taken during normal school hours and in most cases the appropriate dosage of medicine when prescribed to be taken 'three times a day' can be given 'before school, after school and at night'. The same principle can also be applied to medication such as creams/drops for conjunctivitis etc. However, this may not always be the case as some prescribed medication will have times or conditions stipulated by the doctor.

Where students are recovering from a short term illness which requires medication (such as tablets, mixtures), any request for school staff to administer medicine by a parent /carer must be made in writing and include evidence that the young person needs to take medicine during school hours, e.g. instructions on the container or advice from the pharmacist.

If a student needs to receive medication in school then a 'Parent / Carer Consent for the School to administer medication' form must be completed. The consent form can be using the link below.
