Temporary Medication use at The British School
Please do not supply your child with ANY TEMPORARY medication for use in the school day that has not been declared to the school nurse first. Students may receive panadol, throat lozenges after assessment and with parental consent from the school clinic. Many antibiotics can be rescheduled to be given prior and after school. Medication that is required during the school day must be declared directly to the school nurse. Temporary medication forms can be found on the school nurse’s web page link and on the bottom of this letter for your future reference and from the school clinics. Such forms must be completed and signed by the parents and forwarded with the medication in its original container in a named clear plastic Zipper type bag and handed directly to the school nurse prior to the start of the school day. Medication will then be stored and administered to your child as indicated.
