Medicine & Illness
When a pupil is well enough to be at school but is taking prescribed medicine we are able to administer the medicine if it is brought into school and given to a member of staff. All prescription medicines should be in their original packaging with a named prescription label.
We are also able to administer un-prescribed medicine on occasion.
A PARENTAL AGREEMENT FORM should also be completed which can be downloaded from this website or collected from the school office.
The Green Hills First medical needs policy can be viewed via the link below:-
Where a child has suffered from sickness or diarrhoea they should not return to school until at least 48 hours has passed since the last episode, even if they seem well.
Please take note of the following advice from the NHS:
Make sure you and your child wash your hands regularly while your child is ill and keep them away from school or nursery until at least 48 hours after their symptoms have cleared (see Preventing gastroenteritis).
