Welcome to the Key stage 3 and 4 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 young person with Type 1 Diabetes then we hope we can help you to gain a better understanding of what it all means for the young person and how you can best support them to reach their full potential in school. There are so many factors that can effect someone’s blood glucose levels including food, the weather, excitement / emotions, exercise, growing, Illness and hormones which is one of the reasons why Type 1 can be so tricky to manage.
We are currently creating a series of films modelling best practice for supporting young people living with diabetes and attending secondary school to help. So, please do 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. There is also a couple of films from our 14-15 area which we thought maybe a useful insight. You could also visit the DigiBete Teens Section of the site to see more age-specific examples of young people managing their own diabetes.
