Shanghai French School health service, made up of four nurses spread over the two campuses, takes care of the students by providing first aid and emergency management. Working in close collaboration with the educational team, the nurses welcome, listen and advise your children on their school time in a place conducive to confidentiality.
Process to follow in the case of a sick child at home
You will find in the attached document a reminder of the procedure to be followed in the event of a sick child at home.
This procedure was developed according to the recommendations of the SHMEC (Shanghai Municipal Education Commission).
In the case of a long-term illness (allergies, asthma, diabetes, food intolerance, migraine, painful periods, etc.) requiring regular medication during school hours, the health service contributes to child protection and participates in the integration and schooling of students by proposing an Individualized Welcome Project which may be established by the attending physician, at the request of the family and under the responsibility of the head of the establishment.
Nurses also organize visits to the Grandes Sections during the school year, nurse screenings and take action in the event of communicable diseases. Also having a pedagogical role, they lead educational actions with students aimed at promoting and developing health education (prevention of addictive behavior, fight against dangerous games, prevention of malaise, sexuality education, nutrition education and promotion of physical activities, etc.). They are part of the Health and Citizenship Education Committee. The health service is therefore committed daily to contributing to the quality of life of students within Shanghai French School.
The Health and Citizenship Education Committee, created in 2006, aims to deal with issues relating to civic education and health by organizing the prevention of risky behavior (addictive driving, road safety, food, etc.) and monitoring young people in and out of school. It is made up of the Head of School, the Deputy Headmaster, the CPE, representatives of teachers, representatives of parents of students, representatives of students, nurses, school psychologist, a visiting doctor and a representative of the Management Committee who does not have voting rights and a substitute.
The nurses suggest that you consult the document to download from the French Consulate which recapitulates a list of care centers in the district of Shanghai known to this Consulate, including the contact details of certain French-speaking and / or English-speaking doctors practicing there, and including the East Shanghai hospital approved by the CFE.
Our Air Quality Protocol is set to guarantee theprotection of students and staff regarding the risks related to atmospheric pollution.It aligns with the standard of Shanghai authorities (Chinese AQI levels)and other major international schools. Additionally, our protocol has been improved with the introduction of a second control parameter.
declaration of absence
If both parents are absent from Shanghai at the same time, they must, before departure, notify school life and the infirmary by email, attaching the completed document ”Parents Absence from Shanghai”. This document is needed in an emergency. It allows us to be able to reach the person or persons responsible for the child and thus allow efficient and rapid medical care.
