Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1: Healthy and happy children

Our youngest learners visit the school nurse and we take the opportunity to present the school's Well Child Policy to help keep our community as healthy as we can.

Our youngest children have been settling nicely into Foundation Stage 1 over the last few weeks. Ms Meg, Ms Becca and the team have been really impressed by their growing confidence, so much so that they decided to be adventurous and go on their first school trip…… to visit the school nurse! 

Ms Meg explains more:

“As it happens, we had some rather naughty monkeys who were told not to jump on the bed but they did it anyway and they fell off and bumped their heads. So we had to take them to the nurse to check them over. Nurses Andrea and Mai were lovely with the children and showed them how they check temperatures, look inside mouths, use an ice pack and put on plasters.”

This is an important trip for the children as it gives them a positive first meeting of the nurse and the room at St Andrews International School Bangkok.

Well Child Policy

Families who have been with us for some time will know that St Andrews has a Well Child Policy that we share with parents so that we can work together to keep our community as healthy as we can.

For the benefit of new families, here is the essence of our policy...

In order to prevent illness spreading we ask that you keep your child at home until they are well again.

Here is the definition of a well child:

  • A well child is not reliant on Calpol, Tempra or other cold/flu medicine to get them through the day.
  • A well child is well enough to join in school activities.
  • A well child has a normal appetite.
  • A well child is happy and sociable.
  • A well child does not require greater staff ratio.
  • A well child has normal bowel function.

Please inform school or email the teacher directly if your child is sick. If we are aware of the illnesses children have, we can work out strategies for preventing them from spreading, so please inform us of what is wrong each time. 

Teachers instruct our children on how to use and dispose of tissues, and how to cough without spreading germs. They also teach them how to wash their hands thoroughly and encourage this regularly across the day. These are all the things you can support with at home.

As a school, we always do an additional ‘Deep Clean’ in classrooms where we have had multiple instances of illness to help prevent their spread. The nurse also checks the temperature of all of the children in these classes. Parents of any children found to have a fever will be contacted immediately so that they can be cared for at home.

As usual at this time of year when children come together after the long break, there are a number of coughs and colds going around school, some with, and some without a fever. Thank you to those parents who are identifying symptoms in their children early in the morning and keeping them home. This is the best way of making sure we stop the spread of viruses and disease.

Primary School Photo-Week

Last week you should have had an email from your child’s class teacher letting you know that this week we will be having the photographers in school to do individual and whole class photographs. They will also be letting you know which day this will be for your child. Please contact the classteacher if you haven’t received the information.

Wai Khru Assembly

On Wednesday this week we will be holding our Wai Khru Assembly. This assembly is traditional in most schools in Thailand and is a way in which students show respect for their teachers, and for the teachers to thank the students for their hard work and the way they support each other through their friendships.
