Medicines in School
Kippax Greenfield Primary School is an inclusive school. Our ‘Managing Medicines’ policy sets out the steps which we take to ensure full access to learning for all our children who have medical needs and are able to attend school.
Wherever possible we encourage the administration of medicine to be done at home. There are however some situations, usually where prescriptions have been written by the doctor, where we will need to administer medicines in school. For this to happen we require a completed Medical Administration Form.
Medicines should always be provided in the original container. Staff never give a non-prescribed medicine to a child unless there is specific prior written permission from the parents / carers
