Parents are discouraged from sending medicine to school unless absolutely necessary, i.e dosage is to be given 4 times daily.
Any medicines brought must be handed in to Mrs. Hutchinson or Mrs. Palmer at the start of the school day. A completed consent form must accompany any medication. These forms are available from your class teacher or the school office.
Please be advised that the school has no legal obligation to administer medicines in school.
