Moving up to secondary school is an exciting and unpredictable time - a new routine, new subjects, new friends - and you may not want everyone to know about your diabetes. You will need to take more responsibility for your diabetes as one teacher will not be responsible for you in the same way as before.
It may be helpful to tell a few people - such as your form teacher, PE teachers and the school nurse - about your diabetes. It can also help if close friends and classmates know, in case you feel unwell, or have to eat a snack during lessons. Try not to feel self-conscious about your diabetes- it’s worth remembering that other children may have things they don’t want broadcasting either.
