Grampound Road Village CE School

Medicines

Please keep the school updated of any medical needs or changes regarding your child to ensure we can meet these needs appropriately.

If your child needs to be given prescribed medication on a regular basis please come and complete a medicine form at the office. Otherwise we encourage you to give medicines before or after school but if it is still absolutely necessary a consent form must be completed giving very clear instructions about what should be taken and when.

Should your child suffer from asthma please ensure that the child’s teacher is informed and that asthma pumps are labelled, kept in a polythene bag and the instructions for use are available. Asthma forms will need to be completed, these are available from the school office and once returned your child will be entered onto the Asthma Register.

Heather Warne leads first aid for the school with the majority of staff who have undertaken pediatric first aid training.
