2018/2019 Medication at school policy

Administration of Medication 18/19

In line with ACC Guidance on the Administration of Medicines in Schools 2017, Heathryburn Primary School work in partnership with our parents and carers to meet the health needs of our pupils. Pupil Support Assistants (PSA) will administer both non-prescription and prescription medications to meet both short and long term health needs. However, medication should only be taken to school when absolutely essential and cannot be given at home.
