Health & Medical Needs

How do we support children with medical conditions?

Pupils at Bangabandhu with medical conditions will be properly supported so that they have full access to education, including school trips and physical education.

The SEND Administrator (Lynn Howell) is the school’s designated staff member who oversees the medical needs of all children.

The school works in partnership with healthcare professionals to provide the appropriate support for children who have medical conditions. We have an allocated school nurse who visits regularly to support with writing and reviewing care plans for children.  Every medicine administered is logged. Healthcare professionals provide specific training for school staff that support children with complex medical conditions.

The school follows the statutory guidance Supporting Pupils at School with Medical Conditions 2014. Some children may be disabled and where this is the case the school will comply with its duties under the Equality Act 2010.  Some children may have an Education, Health and Care Plan that brings together health and social needs, as well as their special educational provision.
