10 Medical

All students with a medical need will usually be identified before they begin their time with us. Discussions with families usually begin the term before they start with us. A document is given out to parents/ carers asking you to declare if your child has a medical need that needs enhanced support or to be monitored in school.

Once this document is returned a care plan will be created in consultation with home and health care professionals involved.

School staff also receive regular training to support students with medical conditions and work with specialist colleagues when needed to ensure that student’s medical needs are supported effectively.

Any change to medical needs during the academic year need to be reported to the appropriate campus SENCo:

Mrs. Patricia Etherington ~ Aycliffe Site

Mrs. Lisa Lumsdon ~ Shildon Site
