Pupils with medical needs

Support is available for pupils if they are unable to attend school for more than 15 days because of illness.

Further details can be obtained from your school, or you can contact us.

How it works

Education during illness may be provided in a number of different ways. The school will work with the Local Authority to organise suitable education.

Returning to school

The school will make a plan with parents/carers, health professionals and relevant support services for reintegration following illness.

Where education has been provided off site, young people are encouraged to maintain relationships with school staff and friends to make going back to school easier.
