Medical

We all want our children to be fit and healthy 100% of the time, but this is not always the case. Children come to school with;

  • Long term medical problems;
  • Short term illnesses or injuries requiring medication;
  • Conditions that require management through a health care or action plan; and
  • At times children get sick or injured while at school.

Parents and caregivers are required to ensure the school is properly advised of any medical conditions that may affect their child while at school, and to keep us informed of any changes to conditions such as medication, health care plans and physical problems.  (More information about communicable diseases and other conditions where children might need to be kept at home can be found in the ENPS School Information Booklet.)

Where possible parents should administer any medications at home, but sometimes it is unavoidable that they must be administered at school. Requests for this to occur must be made on the form provided.

When a child becomes sick, or is injured at school we take the following action;

  • For very minor cuts, scrapes, bumps etc – basic first aid is given at school.
  • Where any injury or illness appears more concerning, parents will be notified and asked to collect their child from school. If parents can’t be contacted then we will contact the listed emergency contact.

Excursions or off-site school activities

To allow students to attend excursions or off-site school-organised activities, parents must provide information about their children’s medical history through completion of a student health form.

Please make sure that the school has all of your contact details and you notify the school immediately if there are any changes.
