There are two situations when we can give medicines at school:
1. In case of long term complaints, such as asthma.
2. When children are recovering from an illness, but are well enough to return to school and have a course of medicine to complete.
Only medicine that needs to be taken four times a day, or at a specific time of day should be brought into school and given to the Admin Officer, in a named bottle or syringe containing one dose only. You will be asked to complete a form, giving permission for the medicine to be administered. A form is available to download above or you can collect a paper copy from the school office.
Please check your child's head regularly and notify the school if your child become infected so that we may minimise further outbreaks.
Lotions are not always effective, especially for treatment of eggs, and the recommended method for head lice is the wet combing method. To be absolutely certain that all lice have been removed this should be repeated every day for two weeks. We do have two electronic lice combs in the school office that can be borrowed as well.
Impetigo is very infectious. Impetigo begins with a small blister with a red ring round it. Any child with impetigo must stay away from school for three days from the beginning of any treatment. At the end of three days they may return to school if the impetigo has dried up. If it hasn't parents should go back to the Doctor. Hopefully by following these rules we will stop it spreading further.
Please contact the school admin office for paper copy requests of all information on our website, which we can print off free of charge.
