Statutory guidance for governing bodies of maintained schools and proprietors of academies in England.
The statutory guidance applies to governing bodies in the case of maintained schools, proprietors in the case of academies and management committees in the case of pupil referral units (PRUs).
'Appropriate authorities' must have regard to this guidance when carrying out their statutory duty to make arrangements to support pupils at school with medical conditions. The guidance also applies to activities taking place off-site as part of normal educational activities.
In the government's supporting pupils at school with medical conditions references to schools are taken to include academies and PRUs and references to governing bodies include proprietors in academies and management committees of PRUs.
Further advice, where provided, is based on good practice but is non-statutory.
