Illness & MedicationManagement

    Your child’s health and safety are of utmost importance to us, and we strive to maintain open and effective communication throughout any illness-related circumstances. In return, we kindly request that parents assist us by keeping our staff updated regarding any health care plans or medication required for their child.

    Children Who Are Unwell

    In the event that a child falls ill during the school day, the teacher will send them to the First Aid Room, located at the School Office. One of our office team members will contact you to arrange for collection, if necessary.

    Please rest assured that contacting parents is our top priority. We will make every effort to reach you first. However, if we are unable to contact you, we will proceed to contact the nominated emergency contacts you have provided, ensuring that appropriate arrangements are made for your child’s care.

    Medication Administration & Procedures

    To prioritise the wellbeing of students with medical conditions such as asthma, anaphylaxis, or diabetes, we kindly request a current health care plan from your child’s General Practitioner (GP). This plan outlines the necessary steps for managing your child’s specific condition effectively.

    If your child requires medication during school hours, our School Office Staff can administer antibiotics provided that a Medication Agreement for Education and Care Form, is completed by your child’s GP, and is on file. Please note that School Office Staff are unable to dispense medication without this form. Additionally, it is important to note that School Office Staff are not authorised to administer Panadol or Nurofen.

    To comply with legal requirements, all medical forms must be updated annually. We kindly ask that you request your GP to provide updated details that align with the best practices for first aid treatment of your child’s specific condition(s).

    By working together and ensuring the necessary medical care is in place, we can maintain a safe and supportive environment for all students.

    Please Note: If your child’s medication is not kept up to date they may not be permitted to participate in excursions or any activities external to school. We strongly discourage medication in school bags.
