Naturally the school has a very comprehensive health and safety policy which covers all aspects from attention to minor cuts and bruises to emergency evacuation procedures. Safety is always of the highest priority and the school is under constant review to adapt to changing circumstance.
The school employs a qualified first aider who attends to all minor injuries and ailments onsite in the designated area which is fully equipped with all materials necessary. Medication is never administered to students without parental consent. In the event of a more serious injury or ailment parents are contacted and then the school organises for external attention using the insurance policy or parents can take their son/daughter to the hospital of their choice. The British College of Gavà has a private insurance policy to cover any accident taking place within school hours or during a school-led activity.
The school operates a very strict administration of medications policy in order to guarantee correct administration. Parents must familiarise themselves with the policy to ensure that their son/daughter receives the correct attention.
Regular site checks are made in order to check that facilities are maintained to the correct standard and resulting improvements are planned for following these checks. Regular fire evacuation drills are organised to ensure that all persons on site are clearly aware of the procedures.
