Key elements of support

On average, epilepsy affects one young person in every primary school and five in every secondary school. It is one of the most common long term conditions in childhood.

Epilepsy can have a significant impact on a young person, even if seizures are controlled.

Schools should have arrangements in place to ensure that young people with epilepsy are safe and included in all aspects of school life.
