Individual Health Needs
We are here for you
The Health Centre nursing staff liaise and work closely with parents with key external stakeholders, such as specialist nurses and doctors, in relation to pupils who have long-term conditions or health needs.
Medical Conditions and Records
With parental consent, appropriate staff are made aware of any Pupils in their year group who have individual healthcare needs and/ or any long-term conditions. Brief information about a pupil’s medical conditions and pupil specific care plans are available on the school Teams Application. This is to raise staff awareness of any additional needs whilst also maintaining pupil safety in school or when travelling off site on external visits.
Individual Health care plans (IHCP) are securely stored in the pupil’s medical record. These IHCP are shared with boarding and key teaching staff to maintain a pupil's safety in school and provide continuity of care. It is the responsibility of parents to update the Health Centre staff of any changes in their child’s condition, medication, or care. Where alterations need to be made, an IHCP will be updated and a copy will be shared with key staff at the earliest opportunity, raising their awareness to the changes.
IHCP’s are completed in conjunction with specialist nurses, doctors, the nursing team, parents, and the pupil.
