New Medical needs guidance

June 28th, 2014   96


Parents of children with medical needs often have concerns over their children’s wellbeing at school although the majority of school leaders already have effective practices in place to support such pupils. The guidance document will provide a useful checklist for evaluating current practice. This will help reassure parents and carers whose children have medical needs that all reasonable steps are in place to ensure that there is no detriment to their child’s education.

This guidance clearly defines the roles of leaders, staff and governors and the recommendations should be in place by September 2014.
