If a student is ill in class, they should inform the teacher and report to the Medical Suite at Student Services with a movement card. The certified Senior First Aid Officer will contact the parent if required (emergency contact number is essential). The student must not go home, or back to class, without “signing out” from the Medical Suite. Medicines are not issued from the Medical Suite, or administered by staff.
If a student has a specific health or medical condition, an individual First Aid Plan (FAP) needs to be completed and signed by the student’s doctor and presented to Student Services for keeping on the students record. It is also vital that all parent/caregiver contact details are kept up to date.
Please advise of any FAPs, or Change of Contact details, by supplying the appropriate forms. The required forms are available on the Student Services and Absences page (Change of Contact, and First Aid sections).
Copies of the Health Care Plan templates are available below:
For each medication that is on the medical plan and prescribed for your student, a Medical Authority form will need to be completed by a medical practitioner or pharmacist. Each medication will need to have a pharmaceutical label with your student’s details attached.
Other specific health care plans can be downloaded from the Department for Education website.
