Medical Needs and the Academy Nurse
The Chalk Hills Academy aims to ensure all pupil’s medical needs are accounted for and met in full throughout their time enrolled at the academy, that appropriate equipment and facilities are provided and staff are properly trained to ensure adequate support is available at all times both within the academy and during educational visits and physical education. This includes managing the administration of medicines, support for children with complex health needs and first aid.
Supporting Students with Medical Conditions and Administration of Medicines
Our Medical Conditions policy has been written with regard to Supporting pupils at school with medical conditions (Dec 2015), Section 100 of the Children and Families Act 2014 and Keeping Children Safe 2019 to 2021 which places a duty on governing bodies of maintained academies, proprietors of academies to make arrangements for supporting pupils at their academy with medical conditions. Governing bodies should ensure that academy leaders consult health and social care professionals, pupils and parents to ensure that the needs of children with medical conditions are effectively supported.
