Administering medicines in school


Parents should notify the school of any medical issues relating to their child including any medication.


At Holy Family, we will only administer medicine if it has been prescribed by a doctor (including Calpol) and we're able to see the prescription label on the packaging.  To make sure their child receives the right dose at the right time, parents must complete a form from the school office and leave the medicine with the office staff. 


Children are not allowed to have medicine in their own bags or self medicate unless permission has been obtained (please see our full policy below).  For more information on our policy on administering medicines, first aid and children with medical conditions, please click here
