Health and Vaccinations

The School wishes to ensure that all children with special medical needs receive proper care and support at school. To achieve this, it is important that a partnership between parent, child and school is established and for all parties to appreciate their responsibilities and what it is reasonable to expect. Parents are responsible for making sure that their child is well enough to attend school.

In order to ensure that we have the most recent and accurate information to best support your child’s health and welfare we will ask parents to complete a care plan that will need to be updated annually, or as soon as medical needs or recommendations change.

The link to the survey can be accessed from the “related links” section on the right hand side of this page.

Please can I remind you that it is the responsibility of the parent/carer of a child with medical needs to ensure that the school has up-to-date information and in-date medication if necessary. It is also the responsibility of the parent /carer to obtain your care plan provided by specialist treatment teams. This will include but is not exhaustive to, the paediatric diabetic nursing team, the Sickle Cell nursing team, GOSH or any other NHS specialist care team or the consultant responsible for issuing rescue medication for epileptic treatment.
