Children in our school with medical issues:
The main policy that you need to read is called Supporting Children with Medical Conditions in School. This document gives a detailed overview and includes information regarding the legal framework, roles and responsibilities, information about Individual Healthcare Plans (IHP) and record keeping. It is a a lengthy document. The school also has internal policies for staff regarding:
Administering Medication in School
Allergen and Anaphylaxis
Drugs and Alcohol
These policies are designed to give clear information to staff regarding the knowledge they need, their responsibilities and what they need to if they have to deal with a medical issue.
There is a Medical Information Form For Pupils that will be introduced from September 2020. The intention is that this form will be available to complete online.
The Daily Medication Record Sheet is completed by staff administering medication.
