Supporting pupils with medical needs

In meeting the duty to make arrangements to support pupils with medical conditions, functions can be conferred on a governor, a principal, a committee or other member of staff as appropriate. Help and cooperation can also be enlisted from other appropriate persons. We expect that an approach to meeting the duty will be taken in light of the statutory guidance.
