Pupils with medical needs -
- Detailed care plans are compiled with support from the school nurse/specialist nurse in consultation with parents or carers.
- On-going training is delivered by an appropriate health professional e.g. diabetic nurse, cystic fibrosis nurse, epilepsy nurse.
- Where necessary and in the agreement with parents/carers and health professionals medicines can be administered in school. A signed medicine consent form is required to be signed.
- We have a number of key persons in school who have first aid training.
How accessible is the school environment?-
- The junior school is a new build and has been designed to accommodate a disabled pupil.
- The nursery and infant department have been adapted by installing a ramp, a disabled toilet and wide doors in the building.
- We have an ‘anticipatory’ duty of care and work closely with health and educational professionals, parents/carers to accommodate a pupils needs and ensure a smooth transition to our school.
Including all children in activities outside the classroom, including school trips.
- Risk assessments are carried out and procedures are put in place to enable all children to participate. However, if it is deemed that an intensive level of support is required then a parent/carer may be asked to accompany their child.
