Medical Information

Medication in School 

Ideally, children should be given their medication before and after school. If this is not possible, please complete the consent form below or come into school to give your child their dose. Please NEVER put medication in children's bags - it must be brought to the main office. 


Children with ongoing health issues should have a Health Plan set up with our First Aid Coordinator, Mrs Lisa Mushrow. Please email the office for a relevant form. 


Thank you.




Important information from NHS Wales

(April, 2024)

• Measles is currently spreading in the UK with large outbreaks in areas such as the West
Midlands and other parts of England. A significant number (1 in 5) of unvaccinated
children who have contracted measles have required hospital treatment
• Measles can spread very quickly among children and adults who are not vaccinated and
can cause some people to become seriously unwell and in rare circumstances die
• Measles is spread by the respiratory route. It spreads easily when an infected person
breathes, coughs or sneezes. A person with measles is infectious (can spread the disease
to other people) from four days before the typical rash appears
The best way to protect your family is for you and your children to have had the scheduled
two doses of the MMR
, a safe and effective vaccine that protects against Measles,
Mumps and Rubella.


MMR should be given in accordance with the standard immunisation schedule below:
One year old (on or after the child’s first birthday)

Age: Three years and four months or soon after

• If you or your children are not up-to-date with your vaccines in accordance with the above
schedule, contact your GP and they will arrange for you to receive the MMR
• For more information about MMR, speak to your GP


We are asking parents to be alert for symptoms of measles and to not send their children to
childcare settings if they are unvaccinated (i.e. when a vaccine was due in accordance with the above schedule but has not been received) and have any of the symptoms below:

• cold-like symptoms like a runny nose, sneezing and cough
• red, sore, watery eyes
• high temperature (fever)
• rash that usually starts on the head/neck before spreading down the body
• small white spots inside cheeks and the back of lips

It's very unlikely to be measles if you've had 2 doses of the MMR vaccine or if you've had measles
before. If you or your child develops these symptoms and are unvaccinated, please call your GP
or NHS 111. The person with suspected measles should not go to any health setting (GP, hospital
or pharmacy) without ringing ahead first and advising of any symptoms that might suggest
