The promotion of pupil health is paramount within Elemore Hall School and as such procedures and systems are in place to ensure that children who receive regular medication, ill children and those who have had an accident are cared for sensitively and appropriately. Additionally the school places strong emphasis on pupils being healthy and as such has programmes and activities throughout the school year to promote this. Being Healthy was an Every Child Matters outcome that we as a school have sought and continue to seek to fully support in it’s widest sense.

Illness, accidents and medical emergencies
Occasionally pupils may be taken ill whilst at school. Parents/Carers are asked to complete and return the Homely remedies, first aid and emergency treatment form so that we can provide the right sort of support for your child.
Regular, prescribed medication
Some pupils take regular, prescribed medication. There are strict laws and rules in place regarding prescribed medication and the school needs to follow guidance to ensure that our practice is safe and appropriate. The letter, Medication in school, explains our approach to medication, particularly how it must be brought into school. If your child takes regular, prescribed medication it would be helpful if you made yourself familiar with the letter and followed the practice described.
For each medication that your child takes and for any changes that are made, the Parental Agreement for the Administration of Medication form must be completed and returned to the school.
