Supporting pupils with health needs

The Council's policy for the education of children and young people unable to attend school because of health needs.

All children and young people are entitled to a high quality education, but sometimes they cannot attend school because of health needs.

Medical tuition can be used as a short term plan to support a child or young person to re-join an educational setting.

However, it is not intended to replicate a full time educational provision.
