HEALTH SAFETY AND SECURUTY

Students’ Health

The health of each student is a priority to us. Not only as a concern for their general wellbeing but because the health of a child is an important factor in the learning process.


The Nursery and Primary Schools have a arrangement with the Bethesda Children Hospital which is fully staffed with child specialist doctors and Nurses are available during school hours to administer first aid and basic nursing care to any student injured or feeling unwell. The Hospital also undertakes height, weight and basic visual acuity tests of each child on an annual basis. In addition to their routine nursing duties the Hospital is actively involved in all aspects of school life, including school trips, sports days and health education.

In case of an emergency

The First Aid Kit available in the school carries emergency medicines for use in case of minor illness. The school has an arrangement with Bethesda Hospital for the immediate treatment and/or admission of both students and staff in case of a medical emergency. The hospital is located five minutes away from the school and an ambulance is available at the Hospital premises at all times.


Students’ Security

We take the security of our school and students very seriously. As a result we regularly review our security practices, both inside and outside the school grounds and building. Whether our students are in class, on a school trip or at a sports day, we implement strict security measures to protect them at all times.


The security services are outsourced to registered security group. The building and the perimeter wall is of maximum height permitted by the local authorities to prevent unauthorized entry to any part of the school.


Regular supervisory visits from the security organization as well as regular local Police visits are made at a regular period. It is planned to conduct Regular fire drills inside the school building.


Security entrance passes

All parents and visitors must sign in the entry register kept at the security office. There are no exceptions.


Visitor rules

All visitors are required to wait at the office and are met by the person responsible for the appointment, if the guards have previous information about an appointment, visitors are asked to proceed to the Reception area where they are picked up and escorted by the relevant staff. No-one is allowed entry without an appointment and the guards only allow anyone in after checking with the concerned staff.


Entrance areas

Both the gates remain locked throughout the day. One guard is posted at the main entrance at the main school building. One guard is posted at the Gate near the Nursery block. Regular daily and night patrols take place, both inside and outside the grounds.


Parking

To avoid suspicion parent vehicles parked outside the school shall avoid parking for any lengthy period of time (i.e. more than a few hours). Staffs vehicles if parked inside the school grounds are also required to have the same parking pass. The parking passes are issued by the School Office in the main school building, upon completion of a form that identifies the car or vehicle registration number and personal contact details of the owner. Generally we do not allow any vehicles inside the campus unless it is a school authorized vehicle transporting children of the school.


Safety measures

In case of an emergency, the following facilities and resources (outside the school) will be used:

  • Bethesda Specialty Hospital (5 minutes drive from the school).
  • Police Department.
  • Fire Department.
  • Random checks are conducted daily by representatives of the Security Organization and feedback is given to the Security Manager.

The facilities and resources inside the school are:

  • Restricted entry into the school premises.
  • ID cards for employees.
  • Sign-in registers for staff and visitors.
