Medical Information

Sun safety is important for everyone but particularly for children as there is a link between sunburn in childhood and melanoma in later life.  To find out more about sun safety follow this link to the Soltan Sun Safety website


If your child has prescription medicines which need to be given during the school day, please be aware that the protocol for this has recently been updated.

In order to give prescribed medication we will need the written authority of the parent/carer.  We are unable to give medication which is brought in by a child - the parent/carer must come to the office with the medication and sign the authority.

If you have any questions please ring the School Office and speak to Ms Richardson or Mrs Howard - the number is 01273 681377.
