Please advise the class teacher and administration in writing of full particulars of the condition and the steps to be taken if your child requires any of the following whilst in our care:
Required to take prescribed medicines, tablets or drugs of any kind.
Dressings to be changed.
Child must wear hearing aid, glasses or braces.
Ears required to be plugged for swimming.
Prescribed medication must be kept close at hand in case of sudden attack of illness.
We cannot be expected to take the necessary action unless we are fully aware of the child’s condition and the treatment required. Under no circumstances are children to leave medicines, tablets etc. in the school bags or in their desks.
Parents should bring these substances to school personally, explain how and when they are to be administered and deliver them to the school administration. The parent/caregiver must complete a School Medication Form before office staff can administer any medications.
An exception to this procedure is the case of an asthma puffer. Children are permitted to keep these under their personal care provided that:
The child is able to reliably self-diagnose when the medication is needed.
The child is capable of self-administration of the correct dose of the puffer.
The child understands that the aerosol puffer is not to be misused (eg sprayed at other children etc.).
A note from the parent verifying the above is to be lodged at the school office.
