Prescribed Medicines


Antibiotics that need to be given three times a day should be managed at home.  We will however administer antibiotics that are prescribed four times a day


Non-Prescribed Medicines


  • Non prescribed medicines will only be given for 2 consecutive school days and parents will need to complete a form to allow staff to do this

  • “Over the counter” medication, such as Calpol will only be given at 1.00pm after lunch

  • We are unable to administer any eye drops, teething gels, cough syrups etc. without a prescription

  • If a child needs any regular non-prescription medicines, then we would ask a parent to come to school to give these to their child


School nurses from the Kent School Health Team can provide advice, support and signposting for:


  • dayime and nighttime wetting and soiling

  • behaviour management

  • healthy eating and lifestyle

  • emotional health and wellbeing
