Medical Appointments and Medicine Administration

 If your child has a medical appointment, please send them to school and collect them after registration. It is also important to return children to school after appointments so that they are here for afternoon registration and lessons.

We are happy to supervise the administering of prescription medicine if parents have given us their written consent, this can support your child to return to school.

To do this please complete a medical consent form and bring it in to the school office.

In exceptional circumstances we will administer non-prescription pain relief.  Please speak to Mrs Smith in the school office to request this.

Please ask at the school office for more information.

Medical Consent Form


Leave of Absence

Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.

This means that we will not authorise leave of absence for family holidays during term time, unless we are satisfied that there are exceptional circumstances.

Please ask at the school office for more information.
