Ryde Secondary College has an extensive student wellbeing system, which ensures that the needs of each student are met in a caring and supportive environment.

Student Health Care Plan

The present and future health of students at Ryde Secondary College can be enhanced by quality learning and positive experiences at school. Students benefit if they are provided with opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills and understandings relevant to managing their own health. Taking into account what is reasonable and safe in an individual case, RSC will support students to develop independence in managing their own health.

Ryde Secondary College assists students who have health support needs at school by means that include the provision of first aid (including emergency care), the provision of temporary care when students become unwell at school, the administration of prescribed medications and health care procedures, and the development of individual health care plans if required.

Schools rely on and value the cooperation of parents, medical practitioners, health services, other relevant agencies and local community resources to assist them to support the health of students.

An individual health care plan must be developed for any student:

  • diagnosed with severe asthma, type 1 diabetes, epilepsy or anaphylaxis and/or
  • diagnosed as being at risk of an emergency and/or
  • who requires the administration of health care procedures.
