Parents & Carers


When children are unwell, the best place for them is at home with an adult.

Occasionally, however, a doctor regards a child as fit to return to school provided a prescribed medicine is taken during the day. There are also children with long-term illnesses who can only attend school if medication is either given during the school day or is available in an emergency.

Parents/carers are responsible for the administration of medicine to their children. If a child requires medicine in the middle of the day, parents/carers may come into school to administer medicine.
