personal/Intimate care and toileting policy

The vast majority of children will be appropriately toilet trained and able to manage their own personal care needs competently before they start school. However, some children may not be able to manage their own needs due to developmental delay, physical disabilities or learning disabilities. Some children on the other hand may be continent, but still have personal/intimate care needs due to difficulties accessing toileting facilities or dealing with their personal care independently afterwards. These children have an educational entitlement irrespective of their difficulties with toileting and personal care. Below is our policy on supporting children with toileting and/or personal care.
