Pupils at school with medical conditions should be properly supported so that they have full access to education, including school trips and physical education.

Parents of children with medical conditions are often concerned that their child’s health will deteriorate when they attend school. This is because pupils with long-term and complex medical conditions may require ongoing support, medicines or care while at school to help them manage their condition and keep them well. Others may require monitoring and interventions in emergency circumstances.

This document from the Department of Education can provide more information and statutory guidance.
