Policy

Please see the below list of all policy documents.

This list is searchable and provides a brief description of each policy.

  • Anaphylaxis Management

    Anaphylaxis is a severe, rapidly progressive allergic reaction that is potentially life threatening. The most common allergens in school aged children are peanuts, eggs, tree nuts (e.g. cashews), cow’s milk, fish and shellfish, wheat, soy, sesame, latex, certain insect stings and medication.

    The key to prevention of anaphylaxis in schools is knowledge of students who have been diagnosed at risk, awareness of triggers (allergens), and prevention of exposure to these triggers. Partnerships between schools and parents are important in ensuring that certain foods or items are kept away from the student while at school.

    Adrenaline given through an EpiPen® autoinjector to the muscle of the outer mid thigh is the most effective first aid treatment for anaphylaxis.

  • Animals in School

    For health and safety reasons, no animals should be bought onto the premises of Iramoo Primary School without the written permission of the Principal.

    All animals must be treated with the utmost respect.

    We acknowledge that some animals can be unpredicatable and display unfriendly behaviour.

    Asthma affects many children and adults. It is important for all staff members to be aware of asthma, its symptoms and triggers, and the management of asthma in a school environment.

  • Child Safe Policy
