Health guidance for schools

Hampshire County Councils offers guidance to schools and others who are involved with matters that can affect the health of children at school. It draws upon information from the DCSF, the Department of Health and practice that has evolved in Hampshire schools over many years.

The subject is wide ranging. Advice is available on a number of matters, from absence periods for ailments to administration of medication to save life. It is not possible to cover all eventualities but further guidance can always be sought from health authorities and the Children’s Services Department.
