Motion text

That this House welcomes World Diabetes Day and the Living with Diabetes in Schools campaign run by Diabetes UK, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, INPUT and UK Children with the Diabetes Advocacy Group, which aims to improve care and support for children with diabetes at school; also welcomes the Medical Conditions at School Policy Resource Pack from Diabetes UK, produced in conjunction with the Anaphylaxis Campaign, Asthma UK, Epilepsy Action, and Long Term Conditions Alliance and designed to help schools develop an effective overall policy for children and young people with medical conditions; recognises that many schools are not properly supporting children in managing their diabetes and are consequently preventing them from taking part in various physical activities and extra-curricular programmes; further recognises that 70 per cent. of children with Type 1 diabetes who are unable to administer their own insulin rely on a parent visiting the school to do so due to a lack of coherent policies for managing diabetes in school; and calls upon the Government to support children living with diabetes and issue guidance to local education authorities to encourage and support schools to develop and implement policies that result in best practice in the management of diabetes and enable full participation of children with diabetes in school life.
