  • Delivering universal health services, improving the lives of all, with proportionally greater resources targeted at the most disadvantaged pupils
  • Proactive identification of health needs, individual health assessments and appropriate follow up activity

There focus is:

  • Support for children with long term and short term conditions, including eczema, epilepsy, asthma and diabetes.
