Students with medical needs
We would like to ensure that any student identified as having a health care need has an up to date and accurate health care plan in place, informing the school of the young person’s care needs, medication and support that may be required is the parents’ responsibility. If your child has a health care need, albeit physical or mental health need, please complete the “Individual Health Care Plan” document (available by emailing email@example.com) with clear information and guidance to ensure our records are accurate and up to date.
Whilst we are happy to discharge our responsibility to provide the appropriate medical care including medications as required within school premises and hours, all medication must be of appropriate dosage, quantity and within date. It is the responsibility of the parents and carers to provide the school with the necessary up-to-date information on their child’s condition along with the appropriate and up-to-date medication including inhalers, epipens, regular medications etc.
A “Health Care Plan” and “Parental agreement for school/setting to administer medicine” if appropriate will need to be completed in due course (forms available from firstname.lastname@example.org) to be returned to the school reception office with both documents in a sealed envelope with “FIRST AID” written clearly on the envelope.
