Administration of Medicines

Policy Statement

Lawn Primary School is an inclusive community that aims to support and welcome pupils with medical conditions.

The school understands that it has a responsibility to make the school welcoming and supportive to pupils with medical conditions who currently attend and to those who may enrol in the future.

Lawn Primary school aims to provide all children with all medical conditions the same opportunities as others at school.

Pupils with medical conditions are encouraged to take control of their condition and  feel confident in the support they receive from the school to help them do this. The school aims to include all pupils with medical conditions in all school activities.

Parents/ carers of pupils with medical conditions feel secure in the care their children receive at Lawn Primary school.

The school ensures all staff understand their duty of care to children and young people in the event of an emergency and all Lawn staff feel confident in knowing what to do in an emergency.

Lawn Primary School understands that certain medical conditions are serious and can be potentially life-threatening, particularly if ill managed or misunderstood.

Lawn staff understand the common medical conditions that affect children at school and receive training on the impact this can have on pupils.

The medical conditions policy is understood and supported by the whole school and local health community.
