Illness Advice and Guidance

We are not allowed to keep medicines in the classrooms (except for asthma inhalers and epipens). If your child needs to take prescribed medicine you must complete the medical form to show administration requirements.  Please note we do not have refrigeration facilities for any medicine. You may, of course, come into school and administer the dose yourself.

 

Please find a list below with common infections/complaints and the recommended guidance advice issued by Public Health England.
