Guide for schools

This guide is for people who work in schools or other educational settings. It provides information on supporting young people with epilepsy to ensure they are safe and included in all aspects of school life.

Schools should ensure each young person with epilepsy has an Individual Healthcare Plan (IHP) and that the school has a policy on supporting pupils with medical conditions.

Good communication between the school, parents and the young person plays a key role in ensuring the right support is in place. All staff working with a young person with epilepsy should also be trained to understand the young person’s condition and its impact on their life at school.

If you’re a young person or parent please take a look at Young Epilepsy’s main website.
