Supporting Children with Medical Conditions

We ensure that we comply with current guidance relating to our duty of care to pupils with medical conditions - whether long or short term, specifically in relation to the management and administration of medication


The contents are commensurate with the DfE; Supporting pupils at school with medical conditions (published December 2015).


Most children will at some time have medical needs that require a risk assessment to ensure their safety and inclusion in school or a course of medication. Such needs may entail:


  • Short term medication (e.g. antibiotics/ painkillers)
  • Longer term medication (e.g. for epilepsy)
  • Emergency medication (e.g. severe allergic reactions)


It is expected that most children with such medical needs will attend our school and will access all areas of the curriculum.
