Administrating Medication at School
For information about administrating medication in schools, please click on the following link.
In summary, the school is required to follow procedures for medication administration. ‘Medication’ includes all prescribed, non-prescribed, over the counter and alternative therapies (vitamins, minerals, supplements) that are administered in an education or care service. Where medication requires administration three times per day, we encourage families to administer from home outside of school hours.
Medication cannot be administered in an education or care service without a medication agreement. The legal guardian can complete the medication agreement authorising education and care staff to administer medication as instructed. A copy of the mediation agreement form is below.
