School staff can administer medication to a student with written approval from a parent or carer. Except in an extreme emergency, e.g. unexpected anaphylaxis, medication can only be administered by school staff if appropriate documentation has been completed by parents/carers. For the administration of short term medication such as a course of antibiotics, our school requires written authority from parents/carers. This authority can be provided by completing an Administration of Medication form.
NOTE: The medication must be clearly labelled with the child’s name and provided in packaging from the pharmacy or manufacturer. Documentation must be signed and dated by the child’s parent/carer and provided to the school with the medication by the parent/carer.
