Healthy Living

Parents may be assured that the health and safety of our students is our first concern. 

Healthy Living In Lower And Junior Phases

Students in the Lower and Junior Phases must bring a healthy snack each day and everyone is encouraged to drink water at regular intervals throughout the day. Healthy snacks include fruit, salad and salad sandwiches, wraps or rolls, yoghurt and good quality muesli bars.

Unhealthy snacks, such as crisps, chocolate, chocolate biscuits, fast food burgers and fries are not acceptable as part of our children’s snack bag and will be returned home. This will be done in a discreet manner which will not cause embarrassment to any child. Staff do have fruit available for students who would otherwise have no snack.

Our School Nurses conduct assemblies that deal with teeth, weight and hygiene, as well as how to be sun smart, fit and active. We also address road safety issues such as seat belts and crossing the road. Internet safety is also addressed at an age-appropriate level.

Preventing Infection

We need parents' support to ensure that the risk to the children of infection is kept to the absolute minimum.

If your child has any infectious or contagious condition, a temperature of over 37.6° Celsius or is experiencing any symptoms of fever such as body aches, vomiting or diarrhoea, it is school policy that your child stays at home until the symptoms have passed. In certain cases, the school may require documented proof, from a suitable medical professional, that your child’s return to school poses no risk to other students or to staff.

As many infections are spread by contact we urge you to remind your children to wash their hands regularly and to use antibacterial hand sanitisers that are available at most supermarkets and pharmacies.

Emergency Evacuation Procedure

When an evacuation practice is held, or in the event of an emergency alert:

  • For the purposes of emergency evacuation, the BSK campus is divided into four zones. The emergency alarm systems for these four zones are independent of each other.
  • Students, staff and guests must only react if the alarms sound in their zone. There must be no movement into a zone where the alarms are sounding.
  • An emergency evacuation alert will be signalled by a continuous ring on the fire alarm system.
  • All students must proceed, under the instruction of the teacher, to leave the buildings silently and in an orderly fashion, leaving all bags and personal possessions behind.
  • Students will return to class in an orderly way when told to proceed by the member of staff in charge.

Health And Safety Policy

The British School of Kuwait has a comprehensive Health and Safety Policy which all staff must read and implement. Specific managers are assigned to various areas.

Overall responsibility for the implementation of the Health and Safety Policy lies with the Principal.  The day-to-day management of the policy is the responsibility of the Health and Safety Coordinator.
