Physical Wellbeing

People at Fountaindale appreciate that each pupil is an individual with very specific needs.  As such, a range of individual assessments are undertaken and support plans put in place, these include Health Care, Manual Handling, Intimate Care, Postural Management and Behaviour Plans.

Health Care Plans contain detailed information regarding the pupil’s medical needs, including what would constitute an emergency for the pupil and what school staff must do should the emergency occur.

Manual Handling Plans identify how much a pupil can do for themselves, and gives specific instruction of how staff must support them.

Intimate Care Plans identify how much of their toileting routine a pupil can do for themselves, and gives specific instruction of how staff must support them.

Postural Management Plans illustrate how the postural care needs of a pupil are incorporated within the school week.
