In line with our existing school policy (therefore this is not a change), we are unfortunately unable to administer any painkillers (calpol, nurofen etc.) to your child on your behalf. If they require painkillers for a pre-existing injury, you are welcome to come in and administer this yourself if you feel they need it. If they require it throughout the day for an illness, we ask you to consider whether they are well enough to be attending school.
If your child has been prescribed antibiotics, we are able to administer 1 dose per day if they are on a 4x daily dose, provided you have completed the relevant paperwork at the office. If they are to take the antibiotics 3x a day, we ask that you administer the doses yourselves around the school day (ie. before school, after school, before bed).
We thank you for your help with this.
