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: https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/er/Giffnock/information/general-information/

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

Long Term Medicine in school

For parents/carers of children with medicine kept in school and nursery: e.g. inhalers or allergy medication.

East Renfrewshire Council has issued new guidelines for the administration of medicines in schools. These can be seen on our website at: https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/er/Giffnock/information/general-information/

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.

Accordingly we are sending home a copy of our current consent form for your child to be given medicine in school, along with a new form. Please check your child’s bag and fill in the new form, returning it to school as soon as possible.
