Students that need medication during the school day MUST hand it in to staff in the Welfare Room first thing in the morning for safe-keeping. All medicine must be in its original packaging, showing an expiry date. A letter from home giving parental consent is also required.
Students who have allergies and need an EPIPEN are allowed to carry them, but we do advise that a spare is stored in the Welfare Room for emergencies.
Asthmas sufferers should carry their inhalers at all times, again we advise that a spare is stored in the Welfare Room.
Should a student's medical condition change or is newly diagnosed, please inform welfare staff as soon as possible, either in writing or my phone.
Students who wish to return to school on crutches/plaster casts must first obtain a letter from their doctor/hospital confirming that they are medically able to cope with the school environment. An appointment must then be made with welfare staff for an assessment on mobility and access to lessons etc.
