Bambara Primary School
Medical Forms

The school’s duty of care to all students requires the maintenance of a register of student’s medical conditions. The school needs to be prepared for emergencies and should be able to provide appropriate first aid or medical assistance in any event. Parents are asked to inform the school should their child have any medical conditions and should provide the school with an updated annual Medical Plan provided by a medical practitioner.

Keeping student medical records with up to date information is mandatory for schools.

Parents are also asked to keep the school informed should there be any changes to the medical plan and should regularly check that medication left at school is current and has not expired.
