Medication in School
If girls need to bring any medication into school they should:
- Bring it to the Wellbeing Centre at the first possible opportunity, preferably before period one (8:50)
- Bring it in a named container
- Ensure that a parent/ guardian has written in their journal the dose needed and the time this is to be taken
- Ensure that the parent has signed the journal
- If girls have an inhaler or an epipen they should carry this with them. They will have a Medical Alert to this effect in the back of their journal. It is important girls have immediate access to this medication.
When girls need paracetamol in school parental permission is required. We can obtain this by telephone but it is not always possible to contact parents and then girls may continue to suffer with a headache or period pain which could have been relieved. An alternative is for girls to have a note in their journal giving permission for them to take paracetamol if required - signed by a parent or guardian. If paracetamol is given, using this written authority, the dose and time will be recorded in the student’s journal.
