Children with Medical Needs

Tameside MBC is committed to providing a good education to all pupils regardless of circumstances or settings.  Where a pupil is unable to attend school for medical reasons the local authority will work alongside schools, health professionals and parents to provide an alternative provision which will meet a pupil’s individual needs, including social and emotional needs and enable them to thrive and prosper in the education system.
Wherever possible the local authority would look at education provision being provided by school to ensure continuity for pupils.  However, it is recognised that in some circumstances that is not possible and provision for such cases will be considered by a case management panel on an individual basis.
The Tameside protocol on Supporting Pupils at School with Medical Conditions can be found here. Word Doc
