- As a general rule, staff will not administer any medication that has not been prescribed for that particular student by a doctor, dentist, nurse or pharmacist.
- Staff may only administer certain non-prescription medication such as pain and fever relief if the parents have already provided their written consent for this to happen in relation to specific medicines and only if there is a health reason to do so. Parents will be asked to sign Appendix 5 to confirm their agreement to staff administering such medication and to confirm that the student has not suffered an adverse reaction to the medication in the past.
- No student shall be given medicine containing aspirin unless prescribed for that particular student by a doctor.
