Administering Medicines at School

We follow the Dorset County Council guidelines for administering and storing medicines in school.

Parents or nominated adults must hand in and collect all medicines to and from the school office.  Children are not allowed to bring medicines to school. The only exceptions to this are children who suffer from asthma.

Parents must sign the form authorising the administration of medicines by a member of staff. The forms are kept in the school office and provide information on when and how the medicine should be taken.
