Pupil Passport

Description: The aim of this tool is to develop/create a common repository (document) where each practitioner can read and maintain and add to the information about a child that is relevant for the work of the others involved in the care of that child. This tool has been called a "pupil passport". This type of document should be hosted on a system that is easily accessible by all the professionals involved in the care of a young person with a medical condition, but that is also secure.
Notes: Often the work of the different professionals involved in the care and education of a child with a medical condition overlap. Every single practitioner has a specific and individual working area, but his work also interacts and intersects with the work of others. The same type of intersection occurs with all the information produced about the child. Doctors and nurses have pieces of information that intersect with the work of a hospital teacher; hospital teachers have pieces of information that may be relevant for doctor and nurses and they all have information that is very relevant to the child’s mainstream teachers etc.... The on-line character of the passport ensures that every professional has accurate, up to date information. The Children’s Hospital School in Leicester is currently testing a comprehensive pupil passport. This is a relatively complex and complete document but serves as an example that can be shared and used as a basis for your own. Image source: Baigal Byamba
