Supporting Children With Medical Needs


Children with medical conditions which need to be managed regularly in school ( e.g epilepsy, asthma or severe allergies) may require an Individual Healthcare Plan. This is completed in school by parents and school staff, and may require input from the child’s doctor or hospital consultant. The plan is an important way of clarifying the child’s medical needs, and agreeing how these should be managed in school. If you think this may apply to your child, please tell us as soon as possible.
