Original consultation

We are seeking views on the revised draft version of the 'Supporting learners with healthcare needs' guidance document.

Consultation description

The Access to education and support for children and young people with medical needs guidance document was originally published in 2010.

The revised draft version now titled Supporting learners with healthcare needs is shorter and takes account of changes to equalities legislation and new guidance on keeping Salbutamol Inhalers on school premises.

Medical conditions can have a lasting effect on children and young people’s social development ability and confidence in educational attainment. It is important to ensure seamless support services are available to meet their needs and allow continuity in accessing educational opportunities at school at home in hospital or another setting and in cooperation with parents/carers and the school the learner normally attends.

The current guidance document “Access to education and support for children and young people with medical Needs” provides advice and guidance on meeting the educational needs of children and young people with medical needs in the education setting.  The guidance offers advice on how schools formulate policies to support children and young people with medical needs.

The questions should be read in conjunction with the draft Supporting learners with healthcare needs guidance document which replaces the Access to education and support for children and young people with medical needs guidance document.
