North Yorkshire County Council’s (NYCC) mission is to ensure that a child or young person’s medical need does not become a barrier to their educational success, by providing a timely package of provision tailored to meet the needs of this vulnerable population. School governing bodies, Trusts, school leaders, health and social care professionals work with children and their parents and carers to ensure that the needs of children with medical needs are properly understood and effectively supported. Schools and academies take a key role in supporting children with medical needs and, wherever possible, making reasonable adjustments so they can remain in their local school. NYCC is aware that, in addition to the educational impacts, there are social and emotional implications associated with medical needs. It is important that schools receive and fully consider advice from healthcare professionals and listen and value the views of parents and pupils. Individual health care plans (IHCP) are the key element and will be implemented by schools to support learning.
