Response to Scottish Government consultation on ‘Supporting children and young people with healthcare needs in schools: Draft guidance for NHS boards, education authorities and schools’.

In this response, we highlight issues pertinent to supporting vulnerable and looked after children with healthcare needs in schools. We recommend ensuring the Draft Guidance aligned with GIRFEC, and that wellbeing is considered holistically, with the child's view at the centre.
