Management & Care of Diabetes in Schools

school-diabetesType 1 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes in childhood and adolescence, and requires lifelong treatment with insulin, via injections or insulin pump.

Blood glucose monitoring and careful attention to food and exercise are also important considerations when managing type 1 diabetes.

The management of diabetes is a balancing act, and families of children with type 1 diabetes, need reassurance that those teachers and support staff who are caring for their child understand the complexity and responsibilities of diabetes management.

It is important for schools to establish an environment that supports children with diabetes so that they can participate fully and safely, to gain the most out of their time at school.

Information for parents

Parents/guardians have a responsibility to advise the school of their child's medical condition and the particular requirements for the management of their child's diabetes.

For children with special requirements, a written individual management plan incorporating medical recommendations should be developed with the school in collaboration with the parents/guardians and doctor. This should be attached to the student's records.
