What to do if your child is well enough to come to school but will need medicine during the school day:

Procedures for the administration of medication at school:

  • When a pupil is taking medication at school, parents/carers should complete a medication form giving written consent for their child to receive medication whilst at school.
  • When a pupil needs medication to be given a “Medication Permission Form” will be completed by the parent/guardian.
  • Wherever possible pupils taking medication should do so before or after school rather than during the school day.
  • Medicine forms are available from the school office, class teacher or you can download one by clicking here  -Medicine Form

Dear Parents,

The NHS has asked for this message to be sent out to you.

Undiagnosed Type 1 diabetes in children requires urgent medical attention

If your child has ANY of the main symptoms of Type 1 diabetes please make an urgent GP appointment or contact the Out of Hours service. The main symptoms are known as the 4 Ts – Thirst, Toilet, Tiredness, Thinner. If you notice your child is thirsty or using the toilet more frequently, is always feeling tired, or has lost weight recently, seek immediate medical advice.

NHS services are very well equipped to look after children safely if they are unwell. Please do not delay seeking medical advice because of Covid-19.
