Student Health & Wellbeing

The health and wellbeing of our students is at the forefront of our mind during face-to-face and virtual learning. Our aim is to equip students with the tools they need to be happy and healthy people, that can overcome challenges, interact positively, and achieve their greatest potential. Our academic and health teams are dedicated to providing the right support at the right time.

Wellbeing and Pastoral Care 

Our Wellbeing programme is the planned provision for our students’ personal and social development. It helps our students develop a secure sense of identity, build resilience, and learn how to manage their physical and mental health during their school years and beyond.  

It includes three elements:  

• Acquisition of accessible, relevant and age-appropriate information.  

• Clarification and development of attitudes and values that support self-esteem and are positive to health and wellbeing.  

• Development of personal and social skills to enable emotional development and interaction with others, as well as making positive health choices and actively participating in society. 

Young people need support to grow emotionally and socially so that they can use their thoughts and feelings to guide their behaviour positively and develop personal awareness, emotional resilience and social skills. This will enable them to enjoy and manage their lives now and, in the future, and to be effective learners and active citizens. 


Our school nurses attend to students who become ill or injure themselves during the school day. The school contacts parents to take their child home if they become ill during the day and are unable to stay at school.  

In the case of a medical emergency, we will transport the student to a local international clinic unless parents have specified a different clinic or hospital. A responsible adult from the school will accompany the student to the clinic and await the arrival of the parents. 

Nurses are also in attendance at major sports fixtures on campus and sometimes accompany school trips and visits. 

Primary Section

Any student in our Primary section who has been seen by the nurse and has received medical attention will be issued with a note informing parents of the actions taken.

Secondary Section

Students may request the permission of their teacher to visit the Nurse.

A careful record will be kept of any medication administered at school. If a child is given medicine, they will be given a note in their diary by the nurse indicating the type of medicine and the time at which it was given. A record will also be entered onto our school management information system (iSAMS).

Medical Form

A completed medical form for each student enrolled must be submitted before entry to the school. Please keep the office informed of any change in home, business or emergency phone numbers.

A more comprehensive outline on Health & Wellbeing can be found in both the Primary Parent Handbook and the Secondary Parent Handbook.
