WHAT TO BRING
Our skilled and experienced school nursing team is on the front line for students who need advice, care, comfort. They are also on hand for a quick fix and for playground bumps and bruises.
Our medical team are the link between the school and visiting doctors, healthcare providers, anxious parents, and the Dubai health Authority. They also administer immunisation, advice on general wellbeing and healthy eating, and over-the-counter medication with parental consent.
If a child needs off-site medical care (doctor or hospital), our nurses contact parents to make the necessary arrangements, and so it is critical that we have up-to-date contact details.
Parents of children with special medical needs should meet with the nurses to discuss how they can provide the support that’s needed.
In the event of a medical emergency that requires a child to go to a hospital, pupils will be sent to Parkview Hospital.
The Dubai Health Authority requires the school doctor to examine all children in FS1 and years 2, 5, 8, 11, 13, as well as all new starters to the school.
Our nurses also carry out annual height and weight checks, and basic eye tests.
The Dubai School Health Services require immunisation records to be maintained for each student.
Please don’t send your child to school carrying medication in their pockets or school bag.
Finally, the nurses need a note from a parent or guardian authorising them to administer any medicine during school hours. The note should include the child’s name, dosage, route of administration and timings.
We take our fight against skin cancer very seriously and have made it compulsory for all children in Foundation Stage and Primary school to wear a hat while playing outside.
We invite you to visit us, and experience for yourself what makes Jebel Ali School such a special place to be.
Our highly experienced Admissions Team is on hand to discuss and answer any questions or queries. Our admissions process begins with the completion of an online enquiry, an invitation to a school tour with our Academic Team followed by a formal application.
We look forward to welcoming you.
