Medical Needs

Medication in School

  • The only medication supplied by the school is paracetamol. If you wish your child to be administered paracetamol in the case of pain or fever, please ensure that you sign the appropriate consent form 
  • Medication use in school is discouraged however there are occasions when it is absolutely appropriate and necessary. If you wish to provide medication to be administered in school including emergency medication, regular routine medication, pain killers and short courses of antibiotics please complete the form below  

    Please adhere to the following guidelines with any medication that is brought into school:

  • The medication needs to be provided in the original packaging, clearly labelled with the child’s name and in the case of prescribed medication should have the doctor’s directions clearly visible on the pharmacy dispensing label.
  • The expiry date should be noted and a replacement supplied in good time.

Other Points of Note

  • There are a high number of students in school with nut allergies, Hiltingbury Junior School is therefore a nut free school, this includes cereal bars, Nutella, praline chocolates etc
