At UTC South Durham we follow guidance from the ‘Supporting pupils at school with medical conditions statutory guidance’, December 2015 to ensure that our students are fully supported with any medical condition or need. 

Students at the UTC with medical conditions are properly supported so that they have full access to education, including school trips and physical education. We ensure that arrangements are in place at the UTC to support students with medical conditions. 

The appropriate UTC staff consult with health and social care professionals, students and parents to ensure that the needs of students with medical conditions are properly understood and effectively supported.
