Child Health & Wellbeing
Health Conditions including Asthma
If your child has a long term medical condition which requires close monitoring, please speak to the school office who can put you in touch with the SENCo to discuss any specific needs. You may need to fill out a Healthcare Plan, for example if your child requires an epipen.
The school is not allowed to administer paracetamol/ibuprofen to children. If this has been recommended by a health professional for a long term medical condition, please contact the school office.
If your child requires antibiotics, we can administer a single dose, only if they have been prescribed 4 times per day. Otherwise we ask that you fit around school times. You will need to complete a medication form.
