If your child suffers from Asthma, Mild Asthma or Occasional Asthma, it is important that they carry their own personal asthma pump with them at all times during school. 

Also please bring a spare asthma inhaler into the school Medical Room.  This spare inhaler will be available for your child should they lose their personal inhaler/or their personal inhaler runs out of product.

Both the personal and spare inhaler should be labelled with the child’s name, year and tutor group.

Furthermore, an emergency asthma inhaler kit is available in school.  If you would like your child to have access to the emergency salbutamol inhaler please complete the attached consent form permitting the school to administer the salbutamol inhaler should the need arise. All completed consent forms need to be returned to the medical room.
