What do I do if my child needs medicine during school?
If your child needs to take any form of medication in school, the parent/carer must send a letter into school stating when the student needs to take it.
There is a form in reception that must be completed by the students parent/carer.
All medicines must be clearly labelled and will be left with the pastoral team.
If a student must leave during the day for any reason, parents/carers must write a note in the homework planner in advance. Written permission must be obtained from your Head of Year.
Students must sign out at the school reception and will receive an exit slip if a parent/carer is not present. If you return later on the same day, you must sign in again.
