Health plans

Parents should notify the school if their child suffers from asthma, anaphylaxis, allergies or any other serious medical condition.

In the case of anaphylaxis:

  • notify school principal if your child has been prescribed an adrenaline autoinjector; had previous or subsequent anaphylaxis; has any changes in allergies; and any other health care needs or disabilities (including learning difficulties) that may affect anaphylaxis management.
  • Provide an ASCIA action plan for anaphylaxis completed and signed by your child's treating doctor. This should be updated (including photo) when adrenaline autoinjector prescriptions are renewed (usually every 12-18 months) or if allergies change. Even if your child carries their own adrenaline autoinjector you should provide another adrenaline autoinjector to the school. This is required in case your child does not have it on them when needed. 
  • Assist in the development of an Individual health care plan or Risk Minimisation Plan. This is a plan that school staff develop to support your child's health care needs. 
  • Age appropriate education. Educate your child about how to avoid known allergens and why it is important. Remind them that if they feel sick, they should immediately tell someone nearby, such as a teacher or other adult.
