Bringing medications in to the Academy

I wish to remind all students, parents and carers that medication can only be kept in school and administered to students when it has been prescribed by a doctor. It needs to be in the original prescribed container with a prescription label attached. Parents/carers need to complete a ‘Parental Agreement for Academy Staff to Administer Medication’ form from the Pastoral Office. The medication is then kept in a locked cupboard in the Pastoral Office and administered to students following the instructions given on the form. We are not permitted to accept any medication that has not been prescribed. Should your child have any prescribed medication requirements whilst in school, please contact Mrs Huxley at the Academy who can discuss this matter with you further.

May I take this opportunity to wish you a pleasant half-term break.

With best wishes

Holly Hartley
