Administration of Medicines in School

Parent/Carers of Nursery to P7

East Renfrewshire Council has issued new guidelines for the administration of medicines in school. The guidelines can be seen in full by clicking on the links below.

Key points to note are:

  • Parents must fill in consent form AM1 to ask for medicine to be given in school.
  • For longer term medicines, such as inhalers, this consent form will be updated three times a year, in September, January and April. This is to ensure that all information regarding dosage etc. is up to date.
  • The guidelines also require all medicines to be taken home at the end of the session so that no medicines are kept in the school over the summer holidays.
