Understanding our Health Procedures

At Julia Gabriel, we are committed to uphold a strict health policy in the school with your child’s health and wellbeing at heart. In line with our aim to provide children with a happy, and healthy learning environment, we have a Health Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) in place to manage communicable diseases in the centre, for your peace of mind. With health concerns surrounding common communicable diseases including the Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease, COVID-19, and Influenza A and B, we have been implementing a series of additional procedures to safeguard our community of children, teachers and parents.

What are the additional steps currently taken by the school in managing the spread of infectious diseases?

1. On top of our standard daily health screening inspection at checkpoints at all drop-off and pick-up locations, we are fervently educating proper health and personal hygiene practices among our students and staff which includes adopting an frequent temperature taking and visual health checks, frequent proper hand washing, as well as the daily thorough cleaning and all other disinfecting measures throughout the entire centre.

2. Should any member of our school community displays respiratory flu-like symptoms of fever, cough, sore throat, consistent runny nose and sneezing, difficulty in breathing, tightness of chest, even if they are mild, he/she will be required to seek medical attention immediately, report to the school, and not come to school until fully recovered.

3. In the spirit of social duty, open and honest communication, parents and staff are urged to inform the school as soon as possible in regards to a confirmed diagnosis of any infectious disease so that the school is then able to make the necessary arrangements to inform the health authorities and our school community.

4. As of 2023, all visitors to the centre are encouraged to be masked and must wear socks at all times during their visit. Only visitors with an appointment are allowed entry. We reserve the right to request for walk-in visitors to schedule an appointment at a later timing or date with our Admissions team.

Together with parents as partners, and in exercising social responsibility as members of our community, let us work together to prevent the rapid spread of communicable diseases to ensure uninterrupted learning for the children and to safeguard the health and safety of all.
