Children who suffer from asthma may bring their inhalers to school. It is the parent/carers responsibility to inform the school of the child’s condition, to ensure that the Inhalers are in school and to complete the necessary paperwork to enable the Inhaler to be administered. Inhalers will not be administered unless all necessary paperwork has been completed. Support will be given to complete paperwork, if required.
Inhalers belonging to pupils are kept in the school office for children with mild asthma and within classrooms for children with severe asthma. These are kept on a high shelf or lockable cupboard and children use them under supervision. Children will know where their medicines are and be able to access them immediately.
