First Aid, medicines and common childhood conditions

 First aid

Section 100 of the Children and Families Act 2014 places a duty on governing bodies of maintained schools to make arrangements for supporting pupils at school with medical conditions.  In meeting that duty, governing bodies must have regard to guidance issued by the Secretary of State under this section. The relevant guidance came into effect on 1 September 2014.

The School’s own policy is available to read here: Pupils in schools with medical conditions
