Students with Medical Conditions

Students with Medical Conditions

Students with serious or complex medical conditions that may require care or assistance whilst at Elizabeth College need to provide a current Medical Action Plan to the College prior to starting the school year.  The documents need to be reviewed every 12 months and at any given time when the management of the health issue changes.

This information will be treated sensitively, placed on the student file and shared with relevant staff to ensure the safety of the young person.

The following conditions require a Medical Action Plan.
