Intimate Care

Intimate care is defined as ‘any care which involves washing, touching or carrying out an invasive procedure that most children and young people carry out for themselves’. Some children may need support in the short term, for others this will be an ongoing issue.

Some children will have additional toileting needs requiring intimate care during the school day. This is a sensitive issue and needs to be managed with care to ensure dignity, privacy and avoid embarrassment.

Continence issues should not be an obstacle to a child accessing their education. Obviously parents cannot be expected to provide intimate care during school hours.
There is an expectation that all settings make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to meet their pupil’s needs allowing them to engage in school life and reach their full potential.
