Education of pupils with medical needs

Wigan Council’s aim is that all children and young people  including those with medical needs, will have access to quality education provision to meet their needs.

Our shared policy has been developed with partners in schools, health services and social care to understand the education of children with medical needs and how we can work together to enable children to access suitable education.  This policy includes an agreed graduated response,  supporting inclusive practice across all settings to ensure children’s continued links to their education provider, when their health needs may impact their access to education.
