Ryhill Junior, Infant and Nursery School will ensure that children with medical conditions are well
We will ensure that sufficient staff are suitably trained, organising appropriate cover arrangements and briefing any supply teachers. Where needed, Mrs Jones (Head Teacher), Mrs Hudson (Learning Mentor) or Mrs Duffy(SENCo) will liaise with relevant parties to write, implement and monitor Individual Health Care Plans (IHCPs), supporting the children and making sure that all relevant staff are aware of a child’s needs.
What is an individual care plan?
Individual care plans can help to ensure that schools effectively support pupils with medical conditions. They provide clarity about what needs to be done, when and by whom. They will often be essential, such as in cases where conditions fluctuate or where there is a high risk that emergency intervention will be needed, and are likely to be helpful in the majority of other cases, especially where medical conditions are long-term and complex. However, not all children with a medical condition will require one.
If your child does not currently have an ICP but you feel may benefit from one, please contact the school office to arrange a meeting with Mrs Jones or Mrs Shuttler.
