Please understand, in line with The Vine School Medicine Policy, we are only permitted to administer medicines prescribed by a doctor. If a child requires medication in school a request form must be completed, these are available from the school office or from the link below.
ONGOING MEDICAL CONDITIONS
If your child is asthmatic please make sure that we are aware and that they have an inhaler in school. To keep the inhaler in school parent/carers are required to fill in a school asthma card which will be reviewed annually. A copy is available from the school office. It is the parent/carers responsibility to be aware of the expiry date.Current advice is for children to use their inhaler as and when required.
If your child has an allergy then please make sure that we are aware. If they have medication or an epipen then it is essential that this is UP-TO-DATE and that the school is fully aware of how, and in what cirumstances, the medication is to be administered.
For children with ongoing and/or complex medical needs the school may ask for advice from a member of the school nursing team in order to draw up a protocol agreeing how the medical needs will be managed.
