If your child requires emergency medication (e.g. an asthma inhaler or adrenaline autoinjector), please ensure that you notify us and then send this medication into school so that it can be kept by your child's class teacher in the event of an emergency. All medication should be supplied with a clear prescription label with your child's name clearly visible. Asthma inhalers should be supplied with a spacer (where possible); both the inhaler and spacer should be clearly named. Please could we also ask that medication is supplied within the expiry date and that emergency medication is replaced when it becomes out of date.
If your child has asthma, we would ask you to complete an asthma card, which can be downloaded here and then returned to school as soon as possible.
If your child has a severe allergy, which could result in an anaphylactic attack, please let us know so that we can liaise with the School Nursing Team to complete a care plan for your child. This care plan will detail any medication they require in the event of an anaphylactic reaction (e.g. piriton or adrenaline).
