Diabetes management and action plans

The Perth Children’s Hospital Diabetes Service and the Department of Education Western Australia endorse the use of the diabetes management and action plans listed below for implementation in all early years, primary and secondary school settings.

These schools plans are based on current evidence-based, best practice for young people with type 1 diabetes in Western Australia. They can be filled in via the interactive pdf and printed (filling in name and other details, ticking relevant boxes where indicated by the parent/carer and young person in consultation with the diabetes treating team).

The action plan on the first page can be copied and displayed around the school or early learning centre to provide a fast reference for managing a child’s blood glucose levels if too high or too low.

Primary and secondary school settings

For children and young people in primary and secondary school settings please use the relevant plans below. This applies to children and young people in kindergarten up to year 12.

School camps for students with type 1 diabetes

Below is a checklist and management plan for families and school staff to use to guide them in preparation for any school camps that involve an overnight stay.

Early learning and childcare settings

For children in early learning care and education settings please use the relevant plans below. This applies to childcare and family day care where the child is under five-years-old. Print off the relevant action and management plan.

If you have any questions or concerns on how to use these plans please email our training team.

Useful resources
