Welcome to the Key stage 1 and 2 resource page and thanks for taking the time to find out more.
If you’ve landed on this page and you are teaching or supporting a child with Type 1 Diabetes then we hope we can help you to gain a better understanding of what it all means for the child and how you can best support them to reach their full potential in school.
We are currently creating a series of films modelling best practice for supporting children and young people living with Diabetes and attending Primary School. So, check back soon.
Firstly though, please take a moment to watch Dr Yong’s explanation of What is Type 1 Diabetes is. You can also visit the essential films section of this site for instructional films on how to perform daily management procedures and below is a link to the Diabetes UK Schools Pack and the JDRF E-Learning Module.
