How schools support children with medical needs

A medical need is not necessarily a special educational need or disability and schools will be experienced with children with a variety of requirements. Schools are expected to make arrangements to help the child manage their condition and overcome any potential barriers to getting the most from their education.

Schools should ensure they have read the following:

What do parents need to do?

Parents should provide the school with sufficient and up-to-date information about their child’s medical needs. This may also include notifying the school in the first instance that their child has a medical condition and cooperating with the school to support their child.
