A response to the following statement made by the Department of Education issued on Friday, 13th October 2017
A Department for Education spokesperson:

That is why we introduced a new duty to require governing bodies to make arrangements to support pupils with medical conditions and have provided statutory guidance outlining schools’ responsibilities in this area.
