In the interest of student safety Phoenix has strict procedures in regard to students taking any medication (including pain relief such as Paracetamol /Ibuprofen etc.) during school hours. If your child needs medication during school hours then the school requires a 'request to administer medication' form, completed by the parents or guardians (available from the school office upon request or by following the link below) before the student can take the medication.
Download a 'request to administer medication' form here.
This form needs to be handed in to the school office, along with the medication marked with the student’s name, and labelled for the attention of Miss W Sands, (First Aid), A Block.
All medication will be kept safe under lock and key and a record of its usage within school maintained.
Students normally have to attend the first aid room (A Block) to take their medication, and can receive an 'out of lesson' pass from Miss Sands for this purpose. Sometimes it is acceptable that medication is carried by the student (such as inhalers, epi pens etc), in these circumstances we still require a completed form to help keep your child safe in an emergency. We may also request that spare medication for use in school is kept in first aid room.
