Individual Health Plans (IHP)

Individual Health Plans (IHP)


Every child that has a medical condition should have an Individual Health Plan. This is known as an IHP. An IHP is an agreement between parents/carers, the School and Healthcare professionals about what care a child needs and how it will be carried out. Headteachers, School Governors and responsible bodies should make sure each child has an IHP and that it is being carried out.

The Individual Health Plan must be reviewed annually. With some conditions, reviews can be termly. 

If you feel your child requires an Individual Health Plan (IHP), you must speak with the School.  For further support with preparing for meetings, please click the following link:
