Mossley Hollins recognises that pupils at school with medical conditions should be properly supported so that they have full access to education, including school trips and physical education. Some children with medical conditions may be disabled and where this is the case the school will comply with its duties under the Equality Act 2010.
Some may also have special educational needs (SEN) and may have a statement, or Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan which brings together health and social care needs, as well as their special educational provision and the SEND Code of Practice (2014) is followed.
Our lead first aider is Mrs E. Duggan; she is supported by a team of qualified first aiders. Provision is made through the Learning Support Faculty to provide for both short and long term conditions. This includes the storing and administration of prescribed medication, physiotherapy, access arrangements for mobility including lift passes and adaptations for school trips and activities.
With new guidance issued on administering medication and in accordance with our school Administration of Medicines Policy the below ‘Parental agreement – School to administer medicine’ form needs to be completed and returned to Student Reception if your child has to take medication during the school day.
