Your Borough Of Poole

Education for Children and Young People with Medical Needs Policy


The Borough of Poole recognises its duty to provide suitable education at school or otherwise for sick children and is committed to supporting children with medical problems to maintain their educational development. 

This policy is an integral part of the Borough of Poole Children and Young People’s Plan and reflects the five strands of  Every Child Matters - Stay safe; Be healthy; Enjoy and achieve; Achieve economic well-being; Make a positive contribution.

It is intended to support access to education for all children and young people who may have difficulty accessing education due to their medical condition.
