MEDICAL NEEDS POLICY

resource onecrop

Have you seen your school’s Medical Needs Policy?

Do you know who is responsible for overseeing its implementation?

Governing bodies of maintained schools and academies should ensure that the school develops a policy for supporting pupils with medical conditions. This policy must be reviewed regularly and be accessible to parents and school staff. A named person should have responsibility for policy implementation.

The following documents will be useful when devising and reviewing your school’s Medical Needs Policy:

Statutory guidance for local authorities and departmental advice for others ensuring children with health needs receive education.
