When a child is ill during the day, the teacher will send them to the sick room, located at the School Office. One of the office team will then telephone you to collect your child. We always ring parents first; however, if unable to contact you, we will then phone nominated extra emergency contacts.
If your child has a medical condition (eg asthma, anaphylaxis, diabetes) we require a current health care plan from your child’s General Practitioner (GP). If a student requires medication to be administered during school hours, the School Office staff are able to administer medication (antibiotics) providing your child’s GP has completed a medical authority form. School Office staff are unable to dispense medication to students if the medical authority form is not provided. No Panadol or Nurofen can be administered by School staff.
It is a legal requirement for all medical forms to be updated annually, requesting that your GP provide details for best practice relating to first aid treatment of the specific condition(s).
We strongly discourage medication in school bags.
Please ensure your contact details are up to date at all times including extra contacts we can call in an emergency.
