Medicines in school

Primary 1 – 7

To parents of children with medicine in school

Dear Parent/Carer,

East Renfrewshire Council has issued new guidelines for the administration of medicines in schools. These can be seen on our website at:

The guidelines 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.

The medication cannot be sent home with the child, so we would like you to collect any medication directly from the school office on the last day of term.

School closes at 1pm on Thursday June 27. Medicines will be available to collect from the office from 12:50pm.

Please return the medication to the school in August for the first day of term. You will not need to fill in a new consent form at that time. New consent forms will be issued in the autumn.

Thank you

Giffnock Primary School
