First Aid and Medical Conditions
If your daughter has a medical condition then we aim to ensure she is fully supported throughout her time at STAGS. If the administration of medication or management of her condition needs to be done at school then she will have an Individual Health Care Plan outlining her condition, needs, main contacts and emergency procedures. All medication will be kept in the medical room and administered by first aiders. Emergency medication such as inhalers and epipens may be carried by students but spares are to be kept in the Medical Room.
If your daughter needs to take medication in school for a temporary condition then please complete a Parental Agreement for STAGS to Administer Medicine Form outlining the details of when and how the medication is to be taken. Prescription medicines need to be in the original container, with the pharmacist label clearly stating the child's name and dosage. All medicines must be kept in the medical room in a locked cabinet and must be administered by a first aider. A locked fridge is also available for temperature sensitive medication.
Non prescription medication can also be administered in school for up to three days. We can not keep stores of medication (e.g. paracetamol) on site for long periods of time therefore all medication must be taken home after the period for which it is needed is passed.
NO MEDICATION MUST BE CARRIED AT ANY TIME BY STUDENTS. This is to protect your daughter from harm and to safeguard the well-being of other students. All forms can be found in the Letters/Forms section of this website.
