Medication in school

Medical

We have a team of First Aid trained staff who are able to support students who have a medical diagnosis, are feeling unwell in school or have been injured.  Students can go to reception with permission from their teacher and a member of the team will help them. They will also respond to medical emergencies if they occur during the school day.

Where we are notified that students has or developed a diagnosed medical condition, we work with the student and their parents to establish a Medical Healthcare Plan, a copy of this can be requested from reception@maidenerleghchilternedge.co.uk if you have not already been sent one. This will ensure that the student can participate safely in as many of the school’s activities as possible and provides staff with information when taking students on school trips.

Maiden Erlegh Chiltern Edge does not provide medication for students, the only exception to this rule is the emergency administration of pre-prescribed Epinephrine (Epipen) and Diazepam, which has been provided, and consented for, by a parent; or other medication which can be self-administered and for which a parent has given written consent. Please contact reception@maidenerleghchilternedge.co.uk to arrange to discuss such requirements.
