Latest Information For Schools

Recently the Department of Education have launched the statutory guidance for Supporting Pupils with Medical Conditions. This document is aimed at governing bodies of local-authority-maintained schools and is also relevant for anyone supporting children with medical conditions.Statutory guidance sets out what schools and local authorities must do to comply with the law.

The templates give example text that schools can use to:

  • create and invite parents to contribute to a child’s individual healthcare plan
  • ask for parental agreement for administering medicine
  • keep a record of medicine administered to children
  • keep a record of staff training in administration of medicines

If you need support in understanding and implementing the guidance please call us on 01483 238238 and speak to our Head Of Training.
