Health and Wellbeing


Accidents and unwell Children

Families need to ensure that their phone numbers, including mobile and work numbers and those of emergency contacts are kept up to date, as these contact details are used in the case of an emergency, accident or sickness at school. Updating contact information can also be done from the school app.

Allergies and Medical Conditions

Families are asked to ensure that all current information regarding allergies and other medical conditions is provided to the School Office for inclusion in the school’s records.

Headlice

Parents/caregivers will be advised if their child is found to have head lice. Children may return to school once treatment has occurred and there are no remaining live nits or lice. A note is sent out to notify parents/caregivers of a case of nits within their child’s class group. Hair that is of shoulder length or longer must be tied up.

Medication at School

In accordance with Department of Education and Training policy, parents/caregivers requiring medication to be administered to their child at school need to complete the necessary forms available from the office. These forms require the signature of the parent/caregiver and the name of the prescribing doctor. Any medication (tablets) must be placed in a special daily tablet container and clearly labelled with the child’s name, the name of the medication and the correct dosage.

Managing Student Behaviour

A whole school approach is taken in promoting core values and social skills.
Where students do not show responsibility for their behaviour a range of disciplinary procedures is used. For example; verbal warnings, removal/time out from the class or playground, lunch-time detention, and in some severe cases, suspension or exclusion from school.

Good Standing

We have introduced an additional means to encourage positive student behaviour. Good Standing is where students follow our school values and rules. Teachers will fully explain first term at the first parent/teacher meeting.
