1 Charlton Christian College Medication Guidelines Policy and Procedures Prepared by Number of pages Susan Skuthorpe Six Date revised July 2011 Date for review November 2012 Monitored by Review by Charlton Christian College Council College Executive

2 Charlton Christian College Medication Policy & Procedure Policy Our desire as a College is to provide a secure, caring environment for each child which fosters a cohesive and supportive Christ-Centred community where teachers, parents and students work together for the greater good of each person. Therefore we wish to be sure that all of our students are protected by our adherence to a strict policy for administration of medication based on complete disclosure by parents of the specific medical needs of their child/children. A student requiring medication whilst at school will receive it under strict supervision by a Trained First Aid Person. Procedure 1. If a student requires medicine to be administered at school, the parent/guardian should: Inform the child's home teacher. Complete a form detailing dosage, time of ingestion, contact person and Doctor. Medication must be left with Office Staff A First Aid Officer will administer the medication and record the time & amount given. No student (except in the case of a nominated student with an Epipen) is to be in possession of any medication other than in an asthma inhaler for which notification in writing is required. 2. Executive Staff may: Require additional medical information. Discuss with parent/guardian the ability of the school to meet the child s particular needs. 3. When regular medication is required: Detailed advice is to be obtained from the student s parents. The parent/guardian is to complete the form giving permission to inform appropriate staff and the action required to meet the student s needs, particularly in an emergency. 4. Analgesics: Will not be given to students unless the parent/guardian gives permission. Paracetamol only, will be administered and only by a First Aid Person at the main office. 5. Asthmatics: Should carry medication with them. On school excursions, Ventolin is taken as part of a First Aid Kit. Ventolin may be given to a student to self-medicate. 6. Children at Risk Students who may be at risk of serious episodes are nominated by parents upon enrolment Students with problems such as, diabetes, severe asthma, and students with potentially severe allergies are placed on alert in PC School. Photos of each student with relevant medical information and emergency procedures are displayed in Sick Bay in the case of a serious episode.

3 Parents are required to supply an Epipen for their child. This pen will be kept in the locked cupboard in the Sick Bay. Staff are trained from time to time in the procedures for use of an Epipen and Asthma control. 7. Other Requirements Students taking any drug will be observed taking the medication. Any drug will be stored in a locked cupboard at the Office A record of the administration of the medication will be kept in PC School student documentation.
