Supporting pupils at school with medical conditions

05 September 2017

The DfE's statutory guidance concerns the support of pupils with medical conditions at school.

This statutory guidance is for maintained schools, academies and pupil referral units. It is also relevant for anyone else supporting children with medical conditions.

The templates give example text that schools can use to:

  • create and invite parents to contribute to a child’s individual healthcare plan

  • ask for parental agreement for administering medicine

  • keep a record of medicine administered to children

  • keep a record of staff training in administration of medicines
