Administering Medicines

We do not hold spare medicine on the premises. If your child needs medication then please complete the following steps:

  • An adult with parental responsibility to bring medicine to the office clearly labelled with child's name and class. 
  • The adult must complete a consent form advising why they are having the medication, dose and time required. 


Only adults are permitted to collect the medication at the end of the day


Children are not permitted to keep any medicine in the classroom, apart from their asthma inhalers. 


The medical consent form is primarily used for children who have a non-infectious condition, who require medicine through the day, such as antibiotics, paracetamol, Piriton etc.  

If your child requires long-term medication, please contact the school office.

Pupil Health Care Plan
These are forms which are sent to adults with parental responsibility for children who have a particular medical need which would require specific medical attention.  The children are identified from the pupil data sheet which is completed when your child joins Sholing Junior School.  Please advise the school if your child develops a medical need and we will send the relevant forms.
