Supporting Children with Medicines


It is important that responsibility for pupils’ medication is clearly defined and that each person involved with pupils with medical needs is aware of what is expected of them. Close co-operation between schools, parents, health professionals and other agencies is essential to ensure that any necessary medical interventions during school activities are undertaken safely and correctly. Within this policy we define, in accordance with guidance from Statute, West Sussex Local Authority, DFE and the NAHT, our agreed arrangements to provide appropriate medical support for each pupil needing it.

If you have been instructed to fill out a health care plan please download, complete and then arrange to talk one one of our school admin team to ensure that the school has all the essential information.



Supporting pupils with medical conditions policy

Our policy around supporting pupils with medical conditions sets out the processes we adhere to in order to provide the best possible care to those pupils with medical conditions. It is important to note that keeping children with medical conditions safe and well is a joint responsibility between the school, the family and where children are sufficiently mature, the child.

Health Care Plans

If your child has a medical condition, they will need a Health Care Plan to allow Chesswood support them in the best possible way. Penny Lander, Medical Lead will liaise with you should a Health Care Plan be required.
