Children with Medical Needs
It is not school policy for medication to be administered by staff during the school day, although parents may come into school to give their child medication.
We recognise and make an exception for those children who have a long term medical need. If a child has medical needs that necessitates the administration of medicine during the school day, an individual health care plan is created with the support of the school nurse. An appointment with the school SENDCo, and Miss Dytor would be made to do this. Miss Dytor is our Senior First Aider in school. She supports school by managing the care of our children with medical needs and ensuring that training is up to date. The school health practitioners visit the school and have given support to the school in the management of epilepsy and diabetes.
Children with a Disability
Diversity is one of the strengths of our school, we aim to develop a culture of diversity in which all feel free to disclose their disability and to participate fully in school life. We are committed to ensuring equality of education for disabled pupils, opportunities for staff and access for all those receiving services from the school.
Our building is a modern building. We have an accessible toilet. Most of the building is carpeted. We recognise that children are individuals and we make reasonable adjustments to make sure that the school is as accessible as possible for all pupils.
In order to support staff in meeting the needs of our disabled pupils, we work in close partnership with other agencies. Training is provided for our staff in response to the recommendations of the specialist services.
The achievement of disabled pupils is monitored and we use this data to raise standards and ensure inclusive teaching.
In addition we monitor the take up of extra-curricular activities by disabled pupils.
