Pupils with medical needs
- If a pupil has a medical need then a detailed Health Care Plan is compiled by the SENCo in consultation with parents/carers. These are discussed with all staff who are involved with the child;
- All staff will receive basic First Aid training in addition to those that are already fully trained;
- All relevant staff will be trained if a child has a specific need e.g. feeding, oxygen administration etc;
- Where necessary and in agreement with parents/carers, medicines are administered in school but only where a signed Medication agreement in line with the medication policy is in place to ensure the safety of both child and staff member.
