Supporting Children with Medical Conditions
From September 2014, the Department for Education released statutory guidance on how children with medical conditions are supported in school.
Mrs Shaw and Mrs Bambridge have both undertaken training on the new guidance and have been working with the Local Authority and School Nursing Service to implement the new policy, meeting with parents to produce Individual Healthcare Plans. Please note that at the time of training the policy states that the guidance does not cover the Early Years (Children aged 0-5). The Local Authority's advice is that children in EY should be supported in the same way. This is recent information and work has begun on contacting parents within nursery and childcare. Mrs Bambridge and Mrs Duggan (SENCO) have been working closely together to ensure SEND and Medical information is up to date where necessary.
If your child has a medical condition and you have not been contacted or you have not informed school of the medical condition, please contact the school office as soon as possible.
If parents have any concerns or questions, please contact Mrs Bambridge in the first instance.
The school policy is available for parents to view below:
