Health Care Plan (HCP)

For a young person with medical needs, a support package will be discussed and agreed between the parent/carer and school. For some students this will require a Health Care Plan to be created. The purpose being to help staff identify the necessary safety measures to support the young person, ensure the welfare and safety of the student and give details of the medical requirements and procedures in the event of an emergency which may occur due to the student’s specific condition. Sharing information is important so staff can ensure the best care for a young person. Information is shared electronically via the school IT network.
