Epilepsy is a disruption in brain function that results in recurrent seizures or fits.

Most children and young people with epilepsy are of normal ability and intelligence and will be able to take part in the full range of school activities.

If prescribed medication is taken regularly, in most cases there will be no seizures at all, or very few. However all staff should be able to recognise seizures and know what to do if one occurs in the playground or classroom.

Further information is available in Physical As Anything. This is a resource folder which has been sent to all schools.
