Student Health

All students are entitled to participate in education regardless of their health support needs. While a student's health support rests primarily with the parent, school staff have a duty to keep students safe while they are at school or are involved in school activities. 

The individual health care plan must address the needs of the student in the context of the school and the activities the student will be involved in. Planning must consider the student’s full range of learning and support needs. 

The individual health care plan is developed in consultation with the parent, staff and student, where practicable, and on the basis of information from the student’s doctor, provided by the parent. 

Managing Complex Health Needs

An individual health care plan is developed for each student with complex health needs. The plan supports students with severe asthma, type 1 diabetes, epilepsy, anaphylaxis and those at risk of an emergency or requiring the administration of specific health care procedures.


If your child has been diagnosed with an allergy or allergies, it is important that you tell the principal as soon as you become aware of it, or if your child's allergy changes. If your child is diagnosed at risk of an anaphylactic reaction an individual health care plan is developed that includes strategies to minimise the risk of a severe allergic reaction.

Prescribed Medication 

If your child is prescribed medication that is required to take throughout the day, please inform us so we can make arrangements to ensure this medication can be administered.
