As well as supporting educational growth, the well-being of our students is a core part of the care we provide. The School is staffed by a full-time registered school nurse who provides health-related services for all students throughout the day, with a registered physician at the premises on a regular basis and available on-call in case of emergencies.
We work in close partnership with the VPS Healthcare group, one of the largest private healthcare companies in the UAE and our nurse is registered and licensed with Dubai Health Authority (DHA). Our nurse provides first aid, administers medicine and, if necessary, refers students to medical practitioners or emergency services. She works with doctors and parents to manage the health of any students who have chronic conditions such as asthma and diabetes.
The nurse also conducts weight, height and vision screening and co-ordinates the vaccination programme.
