Schools First Aid Guidelines for use of Paracetamol


In response to the growing number of parents  wishing their children to take simple analgesics with them on school trips, including residentials, the school has reviewed its first-aid guidelines for the provision of paracetamol. In future, paracetamol will be provided by the school for minor aches and pains as a first aid measure on school trips and residentials. Students will be discouraged from taking their own supply with them.

If you prefer for your child not to receive paracetamol as a First Aid measure please advise as the new procedure will be run as an OPT OUT scheme.
