Medicines in school

Children should not bring pills, tablets or medicines to the Academy with them, in any kind of unmarked bottles.

If it is essential that a medicine prescribed by a doctor is to be administered to a child, who is otherwise fit to attend the Academy, parents must call at the Academy Office to complete a medical form.

Medicines and lozenges etc, purchased from a chemist and brought in by a pupil for their use, will not be administered.

The Academy is not obliged to administer any medicines but is prepared to help parents by giving a lunch time dosage of a prescribed medicine. These medicines MUST be marked with the child’s name and the exact dose to be given should be written on it. The spoon for measuring the dose should be included.

Below is the form which can be downloaded and completed:
