Health Medication

Medication

Parents are asked to inform the school in writing if their child suffers from any long term or short term illness and if their child is on medication. No teacher can be required to administer medicine or drugs to a pupil. A teacher who, with the consent of the BOM, does take on the responsibility for administering medicines takes on a heavy duty of care to discharge the responsibility correctly. Parents contact the BOM in writing in relation to the administration of medication.
