Supporting a Pupil with Diabetes in my School

The time when a pupil with diabetes starts school is very challenging for parents and carers, who have to learn how to trust teachers, school staff and their own child when it comes to diabetes management. You, however, might be worried and overwhelmed with the demands of diabetes too. It is very normal to feel anxious, nervous, and afraid. Therefore, good preparations and communication between the school staff and parents/carers could help to reduce the feeling of uncertainty.
