A friendly reminder to parents of children who require medication during school hours. Melrose Primary Schools Medication Policy states that any medication required to be administered at school, MUST be bought into the school by an adult, in the original packaging or container, from the pharmacy and clearly labelled with the name of the student, dosage and time to be administered. Parents are also required to sign a Medication Authority Form to give permission to one of our first aid trained staff to administer this medication. We CANNOT accept medication bought in envelopes or foil packaging alone with no identification (this also applies to paracetamol). If your child is on a course of antibiotics, please consider if the medication can be administered outside of the school day, for example medication required three times a day may be able to be taken before school, after school and before bed. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school on 60591955.
