Supporting pupils with medical conditions in schools training
04 Feb 2019
The revised Ealing policy on 'Supporting pupils with Medical Conditions at School', based on the Department for Education (DfE) guidance 'Supporting Pupils with Medical Conditions at School' (2014) is available on the related content link below.
As a reminder, we asked that all governing boards (GBs) review this policy according to their specific needs before adopting in the autumn 2018 term.
As part of the provision to support this policy, the Ealing school nursing service has now published dates for training on the following:
- Implementing the school medical conditions policy
- Managing medical emergencies (Anaphylaxis, Epilepsy, Asthma and Diabetes).
Training dates, booking details and further information can be found on the link below:
Ealing school nursing service training for schools (Ealing CPD online).
As part of the policy (see related content below), appendix one contains a useful checklist to ascertain the school’s current provision and future needs.
In order to assess the impact of this policy across the LA, for any schools yet to complete, we would be grateful if a copy of the checklist could be completed (one per school) via our Survey Monkey version on this link:
The results will be grouped by phase, anonymised and only used to inform future training and support needs. Our intention is to repeat this in autumn 2019 to gauge the impact off the policy and further support and training needs.
