It is advised that a care plan is completed for all learners who have continence difficulties that affect their school day. As the care plan is a working document designed to assist school in their care for a learner, this should include all the information they require. 

It should be completed by school with the parents/carers and involve the child as far as their age and development allows. 

If school have any concerns, if the child’s condition or treatment is complex, or if there are any disagreements, schools may consult the school nurse, or the relevant healthcare professional.
