MEDICAL NEEDS POLICY
• 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.
