Health Policy

At The British School of Beijing, Shunyi we are passionate about creating a school life that enables every student to flourish.

Providing a world-class educational facility is not just academics. It means attending to the medical, emotional and environmental needs of all our students.

That is why we put the health and well-being of our students as our top priority. From this, individual achievement and academic excellence will flow.

Medical Care

We provide a nursing station to attend to health concerns and day-to-day minor ailments of our students in a warm and caring environment.

Our nurses are also equipped to deal with more serious emergencies and work closely with teaching staff and the cafeteria to create a healthy environment for students.

Our Health Policy is as follows:

  • If your child has a temperature of greater than 37.5°C, he or she will be sent home. Parents will be contacted to come collect their child; they are then to have a further 24 hours off after temperature has gone, without any medication.
  • If your child has diarrhea or is vomiting he or she will be sent home. Parents will be contacted to come collect and take their child home and will need 24 hours off school following last episode of vomiting or diarrhea before returning.
  • If your child has head lice, he or she will be sent home. Parents will be contacted to come collect and take their child. The student can then return following proper head lice treatment has been given and no live lice visible.
  • If your child has an infectious disease (hand foot and mouth disease, chicken pox, scarlet fever, etc) he or she will be sent home. Parents will be contacted to come collect and take their child home. The student can then return after receiving a written diagnosis from a doctor saying they are clear to return.

Medication - Parent Consent for Nurse to administer Medicine for Students

All medication brought into school for pupils needs to be brought into the Nurse Office, and to be left with the Nurses for the school day to be given to the pupils at the specified times and dosage.  

The Parent or Guardian will need to fill in the "Parent Consent to Administer Medicine" below. If the Nurse did not receive the consent form, then the pupil will not be able to receive the medication.

If your child has any serious sickness/ injury not already known to us, please could you also tell at the earliest convenience.

Counselling Services

Our School Counsellors and Heads of Year play an important role in giving guidance and advice to students in a setting that sits outside the classroom environment.

We want our students to have an opportunity to talk about topics or situations they may have difficult discussing in school. It makes for a better school life, for everyone.

We welcome contact from parents, especially if there is a life-changing situation for the student on its way.

Contact our Head of Primary School Ms Nonie Adams or our Heads of Year in the Secondary School.

Contact Our Nursing Station

You are welcome to contact the Nurse Office at any time concerning the health of your child. As a reminder, please let the nurses know of any update in pre-existing medical conditions, operations or illnesses so we can provide the best care for your child.
