Diabetes Week: Raising Awareness of Type 1 Diabetes

20 August 2021
Diabetes Week: Raising Awareness of Type 1 Diabetes

Back in June, we marked an important week in the calendar, Diabetes Week.

Type 1 Diabetes affects hundreds of thousands of children in the UK and it’s therefore important for every school, its staff, and pupils to be aware of the condition and how it can affect people.

During the week, two amazing pupils from St George’s Primary School in Semington who have type 1 diabetes, gave a fantastic presentation at Seend Primary School, explaining how while it needs managing, type 1 diabetes doesn’t stop you from doing anything like anyone else!

In September, both schools will welcome new pupils with type 1 diabetes, and we’re excited to welcome them to our school family!
