Support provided by schools

Some children and young people who have long term conditions find going to school more difficult.

Schools will provide extra support and make sure:

  • Support is put in place for children and young people that may be self-conscious about their condition
  • All children and young people with medical conditions are properly supported in school so that they can play a full and active role in school life, remain healthy and achieve their potential
  • Parents feel confident that schools will provide effective support for their child’s medical condition and that pupils feel safe
  • Children and young people who've been off for a long time are given support to help them when they return to school
