I have had asthma for almost 20 years now and when i was at school i was aloud to bring my inhalers to school and use them but My nephew who is 8 years old also has asthma but his school has a policy which says he isn't aloud to bring is inhalers to school with him I for one thing this is soooo very wrong, an inhaler can save a life! Mine has saved my life an if i had not been able to bring my inhaler to school with me I really don't think i would be here now!!
The School I work for as a manager of an after school club lets children bring there inhalers and carry them too and the school is in the same city as my nephews school THIS IS SOOO VERY WRONG!! Each school under the same council should have the same policy!!
The council who also over see's me club says i have to have a policy for asthmatics and that i have to let them carry the inhalers or i can look after them as long as its safe and has easy access too!!
But yet a school where each child is there ALL DAY LONG doesn't want an inhaler in school
Does anyone else have this problem too?
