Prospective Parents: Health and Safety

Here at Green School, the Board of Directors and Management team consider the health, safety and welfare of staff members and students to be of paramount importance therefore, creating and maintaining a healthy and safe environment is a responsibility we take seriously.

Part of our philosophy is to have a deep engagement in the natural environment, which presents inherent risks. We recognize that it is in an unusual school environment due to its location and facilities and thus the types of risks to our staff and children are different to a normal, urban school environment. With clear policy and procedures in place to protect students, staff, and visitors to campus, GS has done the utmost to minimize those risks with the understandingthat they cannot be fully eliminated.

The School on the one hand, and individual students on the other, have justifiable expectations of each other, including:

  • Students have a right to expect that the School will provide a secure, nurturing environment to learn in; the School has a responsibility to provide this.
  • The School expects students to behave in a way which will contribute to such a safe, friendly environment; it cannot tolerate behaviour which undermines this principle

With this in mind, each GS Health and Safety Policy section is a statement of our commitment to the health and safety of our students and staff as our penultimate goal and includes the most important details of that commitment. Thispolicy is accompanied by protocols and procedures and other supporting documents which are available for review.

FIRST AID CLINIC

Green School has a First Aid Clinic which is managed during school hours by a qualified nurse. A system of protocols is in place to manage minor first aid needs and emergency situations on camputsat all times during school hours as well as for field trips off campus. Green School maintains a vehicle on standby to transport injured or very unwell students or staff members to an appropriate medical facility for treatment of non-emergency cases.

This year, a partnership has been established with First Responder ambulance service from Toya Medika Clinic in Ubud and Siloam Hospital in Kuta to ensure that an efficient and experienced rapid response team can be on site as soon as is possible in more comprehensive cases.

In all events of medical emergency, parents will be immediately informed by the school. IMPORTANT NOTE: Please ensure that you notify our Admissions office (admissions@greenschool.org) if your contact details change. It is crucial that your contact details are up to date at all times in the event of an emergency.
