Diabetes in school
Find below three power points developed by Diabetes UK they are free downloadable presentations for three audiences, allowing school staff, health care professionals or volunteers to provide up-to-date information to students or staff. They are based on the presentations developed by David Bailey, a former Head Teacher and volunteer for Diabetes UK.
The first is aimed at staff education, then one for primary and another for secondary. Every child in education will have a Care plan document specific for that child. It is an agreement between school, family and the child or young person on how best to look after diabetes needs, accessing the same educational experience as everyone else. Care plans are reviewed every September in case there are any changes in care. The diabetes team provide free training for schools.
