The health/medical file will be housed in the Health Office. The contents may include transfer health records from previous schools attended, local health forms completed by parent, guardian or personal physician or dentist, notations made by the school nurse or health assistant.
The physical health records may be inspected by parents or guardians in the presence of the school nurse or health assistant.
