12) How does the school manage administration of medicines?

Medicines for students are managed by First Aid. If a student requires medicine during the school day, the following procedures must be followed:

  • All medicines must be given in person to First Aid by a parent/carer
  • The student’s name and date of birth are recorded alongside the date, time, name of medicine, and dosage
  • Depending on how the medicine needs to be stored, it will be kept in either a locked cupboard or a fridge in the First Aid Room
  • To take their medicine, the student must go to the First Aid room, where the First Aider will make the medication available to be taken
  • Each time the medicine is administered, the time, date and dosage is recorded
