If a child needs to take medicine during the day, parents are welcome to come to the school to administer the dose. If this is not possible, a designated member of staff will supervise the child taking the medicine but only if the medicine is recevied in its original packaging with a letter from the parent containing the following information:
Medicines should be handed to the Welfare Assistant for safe keeping. Individual arrangements are made for immediate access to inhalers.
The school cannot accept responsibility for the administration of medicine where the timing of the dose is crucial or where technical or medical knowledge is required.
“ Chalfont St Peter Church of England School is an outstanding, effective and distinctive Church of England school which makes excellent provision for all its learners. The strong Christian ethos of care and concern is embedded in the day to day life of this popular school.”
