What if my child needs to take medication or has medical needs?
If your child has specific medical needs this should be communicated to school as soon as possible. Please contact your child’s class teacher or SENDCo in order to plan for the medical needs to be met.
If the seriousness of the condition would affect life in all areas of the school day, then a meeting would be held with all staff that would have care of your child. A plan would be made to give support and care.
If your child required long term medication, please contact the school. Advice should be given to the administration of medication. Medication can be stored in the medical cupboard until needed.
If training is needed to administer medication this will need to discussed with the Head Teacher and advice (possibly training) sort.
