Medical Policy Documents

All staff in schools and academies have a duty to maintain professional standards of care and to ensure that children and young people are safe.

It is considered to be good practice that schools and academies will consider and review cases individually and actively support children with medical conditions, including administering medicines or medical interventions in order to meet the all-round needs of the child.

However, there is no legal duty requiring individual staff to administer medication, carry out medical interventions or to supervise a child when taking medicines. Any member of staff may be asked to administer medicines or medical interventions but they cannot be required to do so. This is a voluntary role. However a named member of staff is /will be specifically employed to support children with their health needs.

This policy aims to ensure that appropriate support is put in place to limit the impact on educational attainment in the event of a short or long term absence from school.
