Medication at school
If your child has a health condition which requires management in school, you will be contacted by Welfare to complete a Health Care Plan (HCP). If your child is on medication for this, we ask that you supply two of each prescribed medicine for school use; one for the classroom and one for the medical room.
If your child is on short-term medication and needs to take this during school hours, please speak to the School Office. Medicines such as antibiotics are not allowed to be given by the staff unless there are exceptional circumstances, but you may come into school to administer these yourself.
If a doctor has prescribed that your child limits their activity levels due to an injury or condition, please speak to the School Office. We may be required to complete a risk-assessment for your child to remain in school safely.
With the Spring term in full flow, it is easy to overlook what a super lead up to the Christmas break we had, with several shows that were exceptionally well attended by parents and carers. The outstanding efforts of staff and children resulted in performances that left us with some very special memories.
Over the past few days, the international news will doubtless have affected the thinking of many in the Montpelier school community. I therefore took the opportunity to re-read the school’s statement on British Values and reflect upon the commitment to our tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs through the celebration of similarities and differences. Most importantly, I reaffirmed my commitment – and that of our staff and governors – to ensuring that all we hold dear is protected and valued to continue making our school a safe and positive place for our children.
