Most pupils may at some point have a medical condition that could affect their participation in certain school activities. For many this will be short-term, for example finishing a course of medication.

Other pupils have medical conditions that, if not properly managed, could limit their access to education. Such pupils are regarded as having medical needs. The majority of children with medical needs are able to attend school regularly and, with some support from the school, are able to take part in most everyday school activities.

An Individual Healthcare Plan can help schools to identify the necessary safety measures to support pupils with medical needs and ensure that they and others are not put at risk.

Parents and carers have prime responsibility for their child’s health and should provide school with information about their child’s medical condition and any medication they take.

Please download and complete an Individual Healthcare Plan and email it to office@w-h-s.org.uk if:

  • Your child has a medical condition and you have not yet informed school, or
  • There have been some changes or updates to your child’s medical condition/medication

If your child no longer has a medical condition and you would like them to be removed from the medical register, please download and complete ‘Form 13’ (authorisation for removal from the medical register) and email to office@w-h-s.org.uk

If you have any questions about any of the above, please see our “Medical Needs Policy” on our Policies page, or contact Mrs Caldwell at the school on 01924 469549.
