About our School Information Pack
Why do schools need to know about eczema?
Starting school is an exciting yet anxious time for any parent and child. For a family where the child has eczema, this new phase of independence represents an even greater challenge. In most cases, this will be the first time their son or daughter has been responsible for managing their eczema themselves. Also, while many teachers may have previously taught children with mild eczema, few will have had to support a pupil at the severe end of the spectrum.
What does the information pack contain?
A PDF of this entire information pack is available to download from the related documents to the right of this page: just click on the icon.
You will find:
- an overview of the condition with advice on how teachers can help a child with eczema to integrate into both their class and the school routine.
- handy parent–teacher meeting and eczema planning checklists: also available as single pdf and word documents at http://www.eczema.org/eczema-at-school-eczemainformation.
- a series of lesson plans, including a variety of activities and resources for different suggested age ranges http://www.eczema.org/eczema-at-school-activities.
We’ve worked with a team of highly experienced teachers to produce a series of lesson plans. Designed to encourage understanding and compassion, each lesson aims to be no more than 20–30 minutes long. You will find these activities and resources in different formats, for use as a planning/classroom resources at http://www.eczema.org/eczema-at-school-activities
