We support pupils at Frank Barnes School with medical needs, whether these are short-term or long-term. For pupils with underlying health conditions we will need your child's GP to provide a Care Plan with clear instructions on how to manage and support your child's medical needs.
If your child requires short-term medication or if there is a change in medication or dosage, we will only be able to administer this medication on receipt of a signed form which you will need to complete and sign and return to the school office. All changes must be provided in writing, telephone calls are not accepted.
Our 'Supporting Pupils with Medical Conditions Policy' details how we provide support.
