This is to help schools and school healthcare professionals ensure that they meet the duty of care for children with medical conditions as detailed in the Children and Families Act 2014 and expected changes to the BTS/SIGN Guidelines. This site will be updated once this review has been completed.
From September 2014, schools in England will have to meet a duty to support children with medical conditions and follow statutory guidance issued by the Department for Education. The statutory guidance and further signposting are available to read online here.
