Students with Underlying Health Conditions

Tuesday 17th March 2020

Following recent Scottish Government and Midlothian Council advice on underlying health conditions for adults we are asking parent/carers to be vigilant to any condition that applies to their children.

Clearly we are aware of students and their needs but believe that parent/carers are best placed to make a decision regarding the health of their children.  We advise that this is done in partnership with NHS services.  Parent/carers are advised to refer to NHS Inform website in the first instance,  https://www.nhsinform.scot/ and if necessary NHS 111.  Thereafter,  they should link in with their child’s Student Support teacher to discuss how we move forward in these challenging circumstances.

If underlying health conditions apply to your child it is highly likely parent/carers should adopt social distancing principles and their child should not attend school.

The underlying conditions the Government has identified are as follows,  please follow the link and read selectively as aspects of the advice applies only to adults,
