SCHOOL PASSPORT PROJECT

Schools are being encouraged to adopt

a new diabetes 'passport' to help

drive up standards of care for pupils

with the condition. To assist in this, the

InDependent Diabetes Trust (IDDT), has

introduced The Parents Passport for

Schools, available to teachers across the

country in a move to help schools meet

new legislation and improve diabetes

care. It has been designed to provide a

means by which parents can formally let

schools know how to manage their child's

diabetes and in turn support schools

to comply with special educational

needs (SEN) regulations, as well as

informing teachers about the condition.

It comes following the introduction at

the beginning of the current school year

of a legal duty for schools in England to

support youngsters with long-term health

conditions, including Type 1 diabetes.

Martin Hirst, chief executive of the

charity, said: "Children with diabetes

deserve to have their needs looked

after while at school, but unfortunately

we are well aware of the difficulties that

children with diabetes and their parents

face in everyday life when managing

the condition. One area that proves

particularly problematic is managing the

condition at school. With this in mind,

IDDT has produced the free Parents

Passport for Schools. IDDT hopes that

the passport will prove to be a valuable

tool for parents of children with diabetes

and for teachers in schools."

The passport contains a wide range

of information on how a child's diabetes

is managed, including: Dealing with high

and low blood sugar levels; Food and

mealtimes; Insulin administration and

blood testing. Under the Children and

Families Act 2014, schools need to have

a medical conditions policy in place,

along with an individual healthcare plan

for any children with Type 1 diabetes.
