The school is able to administer medication that has been prescribed by a doctor. We are unable to administer over-the-counter medicines such as calpol or cough medicine.
If your child needs to receive a prescribed medication during the school day the attached agreement form needs to be completed. All medication must be in its original container, with the prescription details visible.
At the beginning of each school year and when a pupil joins during the academic year, parents / carers are asked to inform the school if their child has any medical conditions including asthma. Parents of asthma pupils are asked to complete an Asthma UK school card, which provides information for the school asthma register. They are also asked for consent to administer the school’s emergency inhaler should the need arise.
The school does all it can to ensure the school environment is favourable to pupils with asthma.
The Asthma policy was reviewed in September 2015. Spaldwick Primary School Asthma Policy 2015
