Administration of medication

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 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 the manufacturer.
  • Documentation must be signed and dated by a parent or carer and provided to the school with the medication.
