They have taken on the responsibility of my child’s insulin pump meaning they have to undertake more training. They have helped my son gain lots of confidence and feel just like every other boy in his school.

Parent

They work with the family and the child and include them in the care given at school. They have helped build the child's confidence and are very good at making him feel included and that his diabetes does not have to prevent him from taking part in activities.

The school have us 100% support when our son was diagnosed. Their willingness to support our son has taken a massive load off our shoulders, this was a gift. He has never been left out and feels he can participate in all activities on offer. If the school are unsure, they give me a call by that rarely happens which is a testament to the amazing care.

As a mother of two children with Type 1 diabetes, the school have gone out of its way to educate themselves about the condition, to ensure my children are fully supported and included in all aspects of school.

The school has embraced education and support when a student with diabetes required insulin by injection at lunchtimes. The school again embraced the education and support when the student began using an insulin pump. The student is included and supported in all aspects of school life.
