Supporting pupils with medical conditions in school

Statutory Guidance

There is statutory guidance from the Department for Education (DfE) about the support that pupils with medical conditions should receive at school.

The guidance is for:

  • governing bodies of local-authority-maintained schools
  • proprietors of academies
  • management committees of pupil referral units (these are places that provide education for children who can’t go to a mainstream school)

Butt is also relevant for anyone supporting children with medical conditions.
