Medication in School

If girls need to bring any medication into school they should:

  • Bring it to the Wellbeing Centre at the first possible opportunity, preferably before period one (8:50) in a named container
  • Ensure that a parent/ guardian has written in their journal the dose needed and the time this is to be taken
  • Ensure that the parent has signed the journal
  • If girls have an inhaler or an epipen they should carry this with them and also provide a back-up to be kept in Wellbeing
  • Girls with on-going medical conditions are provided with a Medical Alert Pass so all staff are aware of their condition

Upon joining Brentford, parents are required to complete a medical form detailing any medical conditions and, if they wish, giving authority for their daughter to be given paracetamol or ibuprofen when necessary
