You must provide medical accommodation. It must:

  • Be suitable for medically examining and treating pupils
  • Be suitable for the short-term care of sick and injured pupils
  • Have a washing facility
  • Be near a toilet
  • Cater for pupils with complex needs (if you have such pupils on your roll)

You can use your medical accommodation for other purposes (apart from teaching), but it must be readily available for the purposes listed above. 

There are no rules about what equipment or supplies you must keep in your medical accommodation. See our article below for a suggested list.
