Medication at school
In the changing seasons children are catching viruses, please be aware that the school’s policy is not to administer non-prescription medication such as that used to counter hay fever. I am sure you will appreciate that it is an unmanageable task for welfare. If your child is being prescribed medication e.g. antibiotics, please ask your GP to prescribe medication that can be taken before and after school as again, it can be difficult to administer medication within the school day.
This newsletter provides a good overview of the wide range of curricular activities that have taken place during the past few weeks. Even more information is available at https://twitter.com/Montpelier_Sch where you can see photographs of school life. I have drawn attention to the importance of viewing school assemblies and performance as community events and the role that can be played in supporting us at such times. There is important information about absence before and after school holidays as a change has been made to the school’s attendance policy. My thanks to our administrative, support, teaching and leadership teams for making sure that children here have had a fun and informative few weeks. I would like to wish everybody in the Montpelier School community a happy Easter holiday and look forward to seeing you again in April.
