Health support planning

On this page

Health support planning in education and care promotes attendance and positive engagement in the curriculum regardless of a child or young person’s health status.


Health and personal care information is confidential and only provided to staff that are supporting the child or young person and emergency services (if required).

Education and care staff providing physical, personal and/or emotional support to children and young people must ensure any conversations about health needs are purposeful and related to the care, wellbeing, dignity and privacy of the child and their family. 

Health care plans

Health care plans are completed by treating health professionals to describe individual care recommendations.  This page provides links to individual care plans, first aid plans and medication agreements.

Managing health in education and care

The managing health in education and care page provides information to education and care staff, health professionals, children and young people and their families on specific health conditions, and how these are managed in education and care services. 

A health profile HSP128 (DOCX  126KB) can be completed by parents/guardians on enrolment to provide education and care services a summary of health support requirements for their child or young person.
