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.
