Medicine Consent

If your child requires medicine to be administered at school a Medicine Consent form must be completed and brought into school (links below).  Hard copies of the form are also kept in the sick bay - please ask for one at the office. We are unable to administer medication to students without parent/caregiver consent.
 
Students are not to keep medication of any kind in their bag (for their safety and others in the Learning Community), under any circumstances.
 
It is helpful to let one of the teachers in your child's Learning Community know they are taking medication.  Please speak with your child and remind them each morning they need to visit the sickbay during the first break.  If they do not arrive, they will be called over the loudspeaker.
 
Medication will be administered during the first break (11.15-11.55am) to reduce the number of interruptions to learning time and office administration.  If it is imperative that medication is administered at a different time, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.

If you haven't already, you can give Endeavour School ongoing permission to administer Paracetamol to your child should the need arise.  We will contact you first to confirm the required dosage (we have liquid Paracetamol 250mg/5mg in the sick bay).  Please email admin@endeavour.school.nz to confirm this in writing.

If you would like us to store medication long-term (such as inhalers, hayfever tablets etc), we are happy to do so.  You can complete a Medicine Consent Form and tick the relevant box.

If your child is attending before/after school care, please contact the YMCA to arrange storage of medication during this time and safe transfer to the school sickbay
