Medical Policy

Our School Doctor is highly professional and experienced. She works closely with the students, parents and staff to provide individual child-centred health plans. We encourage our students to wash their hands more than once during the day, using water and soap. Our doctor checks the nails and hair of the students regularly. Some children have specific medical needs, for example asthma, diabetes or severe allergic reactions. It is important that our doctor and all our staff fully understand individual medical conditions and how to respond to each case. If a child has been feeling ill during the day, or has had a minor injury, the teacher sends the child to the clinic with a matron and a written report to provide details on what occurred and the action taken.

The doctor has to report the case to the parents, even where there are no obvious symptoms, the parents must be aware of what has happened and the symptoms they should look for. When an accident occurs teachers always call for immediate help, even if they are a First Aider themselves. The doctor calls the parents immediately to report the case and discuss the next step taken as quickly as possible. If a student must take any form of medication during school hours, parents must write in the Channel Book when and how medication should be dispensed. Students must sign in and take the medication under the supervision of the school's doctor. Students and staff who contracts an infectious disease must be absent from school. A Doctor's Certificate should be presented to the doctor once they are back to school.

Our school doctor is there to help students during the school day. She is not responsible for diagnosing a case or prescribing a medication. Students are not allowed to carry or handle their medication by themselves, and the doctor will not administer any medication unless a clear note is written in the Channel Book.

Lost and Found Policy

Although we endeavour to assist in the recovery of lost items, we cannot be held responsible for any lost All possessions and clothing should be labelled clearly. This can save a lot of effort in locating lost property.

Students should not bring valuable items to the school.

Children are encouraged to be responsible for their own belongings and to check Lost and Found Property displayed on the tables beside the Food Court at the end of the school's day.

Due to the volume of lost and found items, they will be donated to charity periodically throughout the year if not claimed.

School Visitors Policy

Visitors are welcome in the school but they must sign in at the school gate and leave their ID with the Security Team.

Students are not allowed to have non-student guests to school premises unless parents take permission from the Vice Principal.

Grading and Students' Assessment Policy

Assessment is a term that covers any activity, in which evidence of learning is collected in a planned and systematic way, and is used to evaluate student's knowledge. It is to help teachers and students build a shared understanding of the progress made.

Many people assume that assessment means taking a test, but assessment is broader than that. It includes portfolios, projects, tests, quizzes, creative writings and many other activities.
