Management of Medication
On occasions parents request that their child be given medication during school or residence hours. These requests are managed in line with Kings Mills Management of Medication policy.
All administering medication requests should be made using the Parent Headteacher agreement form.
All long term medication, medical conditions, including allergies, and emergency procedures should be detailed on the Pupil Medical Information form.
Medication is stored securely on site and carried by a trained, nominated member of staff when off site. Through consultation with parents, on occasions, it may be considered acceptable for a child to carry his/her own medication. On such an occasion a Parental consent for a child to carry own medication form should be completed.
It is policy requirement that every child in school must have an up to date Pupil Medical Information form (PMI) completed by the parent/guardian. Please note it is the parent/guardians responsibility to inform the school and residence of any changes to the child's medical condition, medication or other information provided on the PMI.
