Managing Prescription Medicines

Managing prescription medicines, which need to be taken during the school day:

 

Mrs Pheasey is the appointed person and is responsible for administering prescription medicines on a day-to-day basis.  

 

Pipworth Community Primary School will only administer medicines prescribed by a doctor. 

 

If parents send in over the counter medicines, such as paracetomol / Calpol etc, these will not be administered by the school.

 

Parents/carers are permitted to administer over the counter medicines during the school day at their own discretion.

 

Should any child require short term antibiotics that have been prescribed by a doctor these should be clearly labelled with the pupil’s name and the correct dosage to be administered. 

 

Prescribed medication will be stored securely in the office where pupils are not allowed access.
