Residential school trips and exam tools

We know the extra planning and organisation that goes into school residential trips and school exams for students living with Type 1 diabetes, and we know that sometimes the process can be challenging for students, parents and schools alike. As part of the Type 1 diabetes: Make the grade campaign, we've created two new tools to help make the organisation and communication of school residential trips and school exams that little bit easier. 

After you've used the tools, please take our short survey and feedback to us. Your feedback will help us make sure these tools stay relevant and practical.

If you have any questions about the tools, or want to find out more, email makethegrade@diabetes.org.uk

Using the tools on a tablet or smart phone? If you are using a tablet or smart phone please ensure you open the file in Acrobat Reader for iOS as the default iOS PDF viewer on some devices may not enable interactivity. You can download the free Acrobat Reader for iOS via itunes.
