Medicines in school
Administration of Medicines
It is the policy of Hasland Junior School that we will administer medication in situations where medicines are required. This applies to both prescription and non-prescription medicines where taking these is essential during school time to allow a pupil to attend school.
It should however, be noted that where a pupil is not well enough to attend school they should not do so and not be sent in with medicine.
The school understand that administering medicines is a purely voluntary activity with the exception of staff where this is written into their job description and will not force, pressure or expect staff to undertake this activity.
The school will only accept medicines in their original container accompanied by a fully completed parental consent form. It is a parent/carers responsibly to supply the medicines in date and to collect and dispose of any unused medicines.
