Anaphylaxis Management Policy Updated Policy-August 2015

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 and certain insect stings (particularly bee stings). The key to prevention of anaphylaxis in schools is knowledge of the student who has been diagnosed as at risk, awareness of allergens, and prevention of exposure to those allergens. Partnerships between schools and parents/guardians are important in helping the student avoid exposure. Adrenaline given through an adrenaline autoinjector (such as an EpiPen® or Anapen®) into the muscle of the outer mid thigh is the most effective first aid treatment for anaphylaxis.

Dress Code

The school dress code reflects the standards expected of students and promotes a positive image of the school. The benefits of a dress code include:

  • promoting safety of students through easier identification; and
  • assisting students to learn the importance of appropriate presentation • keeping costs within reasonable limits for parents.

All students are expected to meet dress requirements unless an exemption has been granted. Exemptions are managed according to the principles of equity, fairness and consistency. They may be formal or informal and cover short or long term periods. Students who do not comply with school dress requirements may be prevented from any activity in which the student is representing the school provided, in the opinion of the principal, it is not part of the educational program. Changes to dress requirements are based on information from regular reviews and are developed in collaboration with staff, students, their parents and the School Council. Parents are asked at the time of enrolment to take responsibility for outfitting their children according to the requirements. Parents will be informed, in writing, about the school’s dress requirements. Enrolment is not conditional upon agreement. Read the full policy HERE.
