A teacher’s guide for pupils with brain tumours, during and after treatment
This publication is for teachers and schools faced with the task of supporting a pupil with a brain or spinal tumour. It explains what the pupil may be going through both medically and emotionally and offers practical strategies for ensuring supportive re-integration back to school.
Suggestions are given for how teachers, assistants and SENCOs can help pupils who face extended treatment and subsequent sporadic attendance or long absences from school. It also suggests how to support them in the possibility of devastating long-term side effects or an uncertain future.
