Policy for Drug Education and Management of Student Incidents Involving Drugs ( June 2012)

Page 7 refers:-

Limited discretion allowed to students to carry medicines for personal use

Those students who have a long term need to carry personal insulin, inhalers or Epipens are permitted to carry their own medication, and are responsible for keeping it secure from other students if they do so. Parents should notify the school of this need. Any student may carry a single dose of their own prescription medication or an over-the counter medication during the school day for their own personal use, and are responsible for keeping it secure from other students if they do so. Such items can be lodged with the school first responder for safe keeping if preferred. Boarding students must lodge prescription items with the Boarding Matron. In the unlikely event that a student has been prescribed a controlled drug, this must be lodged with the school first responder or Learning Support staff.

If your child brings medication to the Medical Centre, it must be clearly marked with the student’s details on and have a parent’s permission note with the required dosage. All medication will then be logged and entered onto the school computer system.
