Medical Care at NPS Channapatna

Injuries and illness are common occurrences in the school aged population. Increasing enrollments of students with disabilities increases the possibility of true medical emergencies in schools. The school has responsibility for the safety and well-being of students and personnel during the hours of school attendance, on school property, or during school sponsored activities. The aim is to adopt preventive measures to limit the occurrence of injury, policies to define what action will be taken in the event of serious injury, other emergency, or crisis and facilities and supplies to accommodate students with special needs, illness or injury. Two full time health nurses in each building will be the key persons to implement the emergency plan because the nurse is most familiar with the student's health problems and community resources. The nurses are educated in emergency health situations which include basic life support, first aid, use of metered-dose inhalers and nebulizers, and appropriate treatment for any student or staff member experiencing an anaphylactic reaction in school.

Certain procedures in handling emergencies:

A complete emergency medical kit should be kept in the secure location designated for medications in each building. The kits should be readily available to educated staff volunteers. A protocol for updating and monitoring the kit should be established

NPS Channapatna Pastoral Care

In our school, Guidance and Pastoral Care teams are responsible for pupils' wellbeing and they dedicate time, energy and expertise to encouraging and advising pupils. We have our own pastoral care aims that describe how pupils will be supported and nurtured. Broadly speaking, pupils are encouraged to give their best, support one another and grow in confidence. Our Pastoral care addresses the following:

Providing an environment in which pupils feel comfortable, safe and secure in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect.

Encouraging interaction between pupils in a positive manner

Providing conditions where pupils can develop abilities, skills and talents.

Providing activities that are appropriate for age and stage which encourage each pupil to develop socially and culturally. This support strategy is complemented with various co- and extra-curricular activities, which allow our pastoral care provision to evolve past problem solving to creating and maintaining a supportive environment that encourages and stimulates learning. This corroborates and is aligned with what happens in the classroom, but shakes things up a bit developing pupils' responsibility - for themselves and others.
