Medical Information and Care Plans
If your child has a medical condition that school needs to be made aware of then please complete the Google form below providing as much detail as possible. Where a student has a severe medical issue then please contact the medical lead Mrs Sandra Hart on 01736 753009 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If your child has a Health Care Plan written by a medical professional, please email this to the above email for us to add to our system.
Occasionally, you may wish for school to administer medicine to your child. In order for us to do this, please complete the consent form (FORM 1) below which authorises school to administer the medicine and also do note the following important points:
- All medicines must be clearly labelled and handed in to reception for collection by our first aid team.
- Authorisation forms will also be held at reception for you to complete when handing in medicines. Without this consent form being completed, we will unfortunately not be able to administer medications.
Please be aware that medicines should only be taken in school when essential. Where clinically possible, medicines should be prescribed in dose frequencies which enable them to be taken outside school hours.
A consent form will also need to be completed for authorisation to administer over the counter medicines such as paracetamol or hay fever medication. The school is not able to provide over the counter medicine; this must be provided by yourself as parent/ carer and will be stored safely in school for your child only.
This authorisation will then last for the year but will need a new consent form at the start of each academic year. Please note that these medications will not be administered before 12 midday to ensure the timings of any medications already given are safe to administer.
Please also do note that students are not permitted to carry any medications in their school bag (other than a prescribed epipen or asthma inhaler – see below); this is outlined in our banned items list (please refer to our behaviour policy). This is to ensure the health and safety of all students as part of our duty of care to all students. All medicine, including over the counter medicines such as paracetamol and ibuprofen, must be handed into the school for administration with a completed consent form.
If your child self manages their asthma and carries their own inhaler or must carry an Epi-Pen, please complete the consent form (FORM 2) below which gives notification of them carrying this medicine and your permission for them to carry and self-administer these.
To discuss any specific medication or for any questions or queries, please contact the medical lead Mrs Sandra Hart on 01736 753009 or email email@example.com
If your child will be coming into school on crutches, in a wheelchair or has an arm cast/sling please inform first aid at the earliest convenience. A risk assessment will need to be completed prior to your child’s return to school.
