Discipline procedure and behaviour management


Section 1 - Administering Medicines
Only medication prescribed by a doctor will be administered by Nursery staff and
Calpol. Before any medicine can be administered a medical consent form must be
completed by the parent. It is hoped that medicines will be administered by parents as
often as is reasonably possible. Prescription medicine is only to be given to the named
child by a senior member of staff, again with the written consent of the parent. This
will be witnessed by another member of staff by checking the child’s name,
medication and dosage. To this end the Medicine Forms is to be completed. The book
will detail:-
the name of the medication / reason for the medication The Medicine Book is to be securely stored at all times. All medicines are to be stored in their original containers, be clearly labelled and inaccessible to the children. To administer some prescription medicines staff will require instruction from a health care professional, in such cases it is the parent’s responsibility to arrange the instruction – such medicines will not be administered until sufficient instruction has been provided. However, to support parents the Nursery will, on completion of a duly completed medical authority form, administer Calpol when a child’s temperature reaches 38 degrees Celsius and above. This allows us to support young children who get high temperatures from time to time. Verbal permission will be required for each administration. We also require written permission before we can administer Calpol this can be sent via emailor by texting our work phone on 0752 788 7607. The children will also be sent home. All medicines (including sunscreens, skin creams/lotions) must be in the original container with the child’s full name and dosage instructions clearly marked on it. The medicine must be handed, together with a signed medical consent form, to the acting Nursery Manager. For prescription medicines, only one duly completed medical consent form is required for a course of treatment. ADMINISTERING MEDICINES & ASTHMA
A duly completed medical consent form also gives permission to the nursery staff or a
supervised trainee, to apply baby wipes as necessary - this is in accordance with
accepted good practice.
All medicines are stored securely. All medical incidents and medicines administered
on the premises are recorded in the Medicine Form.
Section 2 - Asthma
To consider medical advice on the best procedures to support asthmatic children in
the Nursery and to enable them to take part as fully and safely as possible in all
Copies of the child's specific medical needs (as advised by parents) are kept in the Nursery office. Inhalers will be taken out of the Nursery for off-site activities. It is important that all adults involved with children receive advice on practical asthma management.
Obtaining and Recording Accurate Information
The Nursery asks all new parents whether their child has asthma on the medical
consent form. If the child does suffer from asthma then additional information will be
recorded, i.e.
 Personal details, hospital reference, if applicable;
 Treatment needed regularly (preventer);
 Relief treatment (relievers) if required.
Access to Medicines and Inhalers
As with all prescribed medicines inhalers and capsules must be labelled appropriately.
There are two main types of inhaler:
Relievers clearly relieve the symptoms of asthma - common examples are
called 'Ventolin' and 'Bricanyl' and are usually BLUE in colour.
Preventers relieve inflammation and are clearly designed to prevent the onset
of asthma - common preventers are 'Beclafort', 'Becatide' and 'Intal' and are
usually BROWN in colour.

Section 3 - Helping To Prevent Asthma Attacks
Sports & Exercise
Staff should be aware of those children who may become wheezy during exercise and
who may need to use their inhaler before taking part. Breathlessness during an
activity should result in the child withdrawing from the activity and having an
appropriate rest period.
Staff need to be aware that some animals can cause a sudden and severe reaction.
Children who react in this way, should not approach, handle or care for the animals.
Returning From Absence Due To Illness
Parents should ensure that the child can cope with the whole session/day at the
Long-term Medical Problems
Children suffering from conditions which might require emergency treatment at any
time, such as asthma, epilepsy or diabetes, will be highlighted in the register in red.
Cleaning Regimes
Excessive dust from 'walked in' dirt (clay particles) contributes to respiratory
problems and should be removed by vacuuming on a regular basis rather than by
normal sweeping.
