Parental Agreement for school to administer medicine
Please note that our Medicines in School policy states that we will only accept medicines which are essential; that is where it would be detrimental to a child’s health if the medicines were not administered during the school day.
Medicines must always be provided in the original container as dispensed by a pharmacist and include the prescriber’s instructions for administration. The school will not accept medicines that have been taken out of the container as originally dispensed nor make changes to dosages on parental instruction.
School request parents, wherever possible, to administer dosages outside of the school day e.g. if there are three dosages in one day, one first thing, one on return home and one at bedtime.
In all cases, no medication should ever come into school in the possession of a child. All medication must be handed from adult to adult.
Application for Leave of Absence
Leave of absence
From September 1st 2013 the government amended the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006 to remove references to family holiday and to make clear that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Before considering applying for leave of absence for their child or children, parents/carers must apply using the ‘Request to authorise term time leave of absence due to exceptional circumstances’ form at least 30 days before the planned leave (no less than a month). Parents are strongly advised discussing the proposed absence with their child’s class teacher before completing the form.
While leave of absence might be granted during term time, it is granted entirely at the Headteacher's discretion –it is not a parental right.
The Headteacher will carefully consider the child’s previous attendance record and should concerns be raised, for example, should the child’s average attendance be below 95%, it is highly unlikely that the further absence will be authorised.
