  • Asthma Inhalers

    Published 21/10/19

    As the cold weather is now upon us, we are asking all parents with children who are asthmatic to ensure they have their reliever inhaler on them while they are in school.

    We also advise that an emergency inhaler is kept in school and we are happy to store these in our medical cabinet in Student Services. As with all stored medicines we would need the inhaler to be in a box with a prescription label on it and a school consent form to be completed for our records.

    If you have any concerns or would like to keep an emergency inhaler in school, please do contact us at the school office.

    As part of OCC’s protocol regarding unauthorised term time holidays, action may be taken for Unauthorised Holiday in term time during the academic year when a request for leave, due to exceptional circumstances, is declined.

    Under the education-related provisions of the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003, Local Authorities, schools and the police have a duty to issue penalty fines to parents or carers of children who are absent from school for the purpose of family holidays during term time without authorisation from the Headteacher.
