FAQ - ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICATION IN SCHOOLS

Frequently Asked Questions

Since all staff have a duty of care towards the safety and welfare of children in their setting, our training specialists often get asked about this Administration of Medication training course. We have put some of the most commonly asked questions below.

Are schools legally obliged to administer medication?

Teachers are not legally obliged to administer medication to children, or to supervise them taking it.

However, all schools must have a policy in place that dictates how they will minister medicines and teaching unions advise that they shouldn't give medicine to children unless they've had the appropriate training or information.

What are the basic requirements for medication administration at school?

The basic requirements for medication administration in schools are to have the correct medication policies and procedures in place and ensure you have a teacher or member of staff with the appropriate training or information on how to administer medication for those that need to take medicine during school hours or on school trips.

Why is this Medication Administration at schools training important?

At some stage in life, most children will need to take medication at school, whether that's antibiotics or insulin to control their diabetes. It's important that teachers or school staff take Medication Administration training because it means they are fully trained and have the appropriate information to safely administer medicine to pupils, along with understanding the laws that apply and the requirements for consent forms and record keeping.

Our Administration of Medication in Schools will teach your staff the necessary skills and knowledge they require.
