 Hartshead Junior and Infant School's policy, is that staff are not allowed to administer medicines but parents may come into school to administer them themselves. Children with long term and persistent medical needs will have an Individual Health Care Plan developed.  DFE guidance 2015 states where clinically possible, medicines should be prescribed in dose frequencies which enable them to be taken outside school hours. For full guidance follow the link below:-

Milk and Water

All children may have a third of a pint of semi-skimmed milk each day.  Pupils who partake in the ’Milk for Schools Scheme’ benefit from a subsidy from the Intervention Board.  This represents a significant reduction in the actual cost of milk.   Water is provided for all children.  Chilled water is available from coolers positioned at two points around the school. 



We are a cashless school, payment for school meals, trips and clubs are made on the online system called Parentpay.  The Parents' Association often run events where cash is brought to school; in this instance it should be in an envelope with the child’s name, class, amount and the reason clearly written on the outside.  


School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme

The ‘School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme’ is a national government programme entitling all children between the ages of four and six to a free piece of fruit or vegetable each school day. They may be given an apple, pear, banana, satsuma, carrot or cherry tomatoes. Key Stage Two children are encouraged to bring fruit from home to eat as a snack at break time.


Sweets and chewing gum should not be brought into school.
