Medication in schools

Medication in Schools

We fully support all students with medical conditions within the Academy and ask that you share any relevant information with us to ensure we can care for your child.  Any child who is required to take medication during the day or who has a specific medical condition may require a care plan. Please speak to Sue Farrah in the first instance.

We have a large number of trained first aiders, however the following staff are our delegated first aiders:

  • Sue Farrah
  • Oli Lewis
  • Rachel Gatehouse

We take our responsibilities in ensuring children take correct and prescribed medication very seriously. As per Government guidelines, all medication must be signed in by parents and must have a prescription label detailing the child’s name and medication.  Please see the document here detailing our responsibilities.

The following staff have had additional training to supervise children in taking prescribed medication:

  • Sue Farrah
  • Oli Lewis
  • Rachel Gatehouse
  • Ross Thompson

If you have any questions or require more information please contact Sarah Husband on sarah.husband@e-act.org.uk
