Every pupil who attends Nexus has a care plan. The purpose of a care plan is to have a record of all key information relating to each individual pupil in one accessible document. The information is pulled together from a variety of different sources including parents/carers, teachers, therapists and consultants. The information and level of detail recorded within the plans depends on the need of each individual pupil.
Prior to a pupil starting Nexus the class teacher, school nurse (if appropriate) will meet with parents / carers in order to write certain aspects the care plan including:
- Contact Information
- Medical Information
- Eating and drinking guidelines
- Personal Care guidelines
Additional information (Positive Behaviour Plans / Individual Risk Assessments) will be completed once the pupil starts school.
Care plans will be routinely reviewed at your child’s annual review. There is a clear process in place for review of the Care Plans with clear expectations regarding the return of paperwork to the school.
Please Note – Failure to return Care Plans may result in pupils not being able to return to school.
