Am I right in saying we can give calpol or nuroften if the parents request us to as long as we have written permission each time and the meds are in the proper box etc.

I do. Always fill out and get signed the form, never had a problem with doing this but I do explain to parents there has to be a valid reason for them, so not just because child seems to be under the weather.

Yes. Don't forget that the medicine should be labelled with the child's name too.
