Administering medicine

When necessary school will administer prescribed medicines. We cannot administer medication that has not been prescribed by a doctor (unless this is paracetomol). A parental agreement for school to administer medicine does need to be completed when medicine is brought into school. If your child needs to use an inhaler or take medicine on a regular basis please discuss the matter with the Office Manager. For further details concerning administering medicines and health care plans please refer to the medicine policy which is available in school.

Term Time Holidays

You are asked to avoid booking holidays during term time as this has an adverse effect on your child’s learning. We do appreciate, that from time to time, you may wish to keep your child off school for important family reasons. However, it is the governors’ policy and the policy of all STARMAT schools that holiday requests will be unauthorised. On occasions absences due to exceptional circumstances may be authorised.
