Student medical information
Schools must provide parents or carers with the opportunity to vary any medical information previously given to the school before any excursion.
Confidential Medical Information Form
A confidential medical information form must be completed by parents or carers before any excursion involving an overnight component, an adventure activity or any travel via air or water.
- ensure that the teacher-in-charge has immediate access to either hard copy or electronic versions of the medical information forms on the excursion
- ensure these forms are available to other excursion staff in emergency situations
- keep copies of the forms at the school
Schools may require additional medical information depending on the nature of the activities undertaken.
