We follow West Sussex Guidelines which advise that we are unable to administer medication during the school day. If a doctor prescribes any medication that needs a midday dose, parents/carers are welcome to come to school to administer the medication for their child. Appropriate consideration is given to children with long term ailments like asthma and arrangements to meet their needs are made. For example inhalers for children with asthma should be handed in and these are kept in the classroom with a record sheet in a named bag. No other medication, including cough sweets, is allowed to be held or administered by the children.
