Immunisation

The ACT Department of Health advises that all children attending school in the ACT should be immunised against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, polio, measles, mumps, rubella and HIB (Haemophilus influenza type b). We would ask that you check your child's present immunisation status to see whether it is complete for his/her age. ACT Public Health regulations require schools to request proof of up-to-date immunisation when enrolling. Failure to provide this may result in your child being excluded from school should an outbreak of an infectious disease occur.


Infectious Diseases and Exclusion form School

A copy of exclusion periods for students with infectious diseases is available here. Parents are asked to adhere closely to these requirements unless medical advice to the contrary is provided in writing. For further information For more information download the departmental policy on Infectious Diseases and Exclusion from School.


Insurance

The school does not carry personal accident insurance for students. Parents are advised to take out their own personal accident insurance for their families.


Internet, Email, Computer Facilities and External Networks

ICT integrates across all areas of the curriculum.  Students at the school have access to laptops, ipads, cameras and Chromebook devices.  Interactive whiteboards support learning in the classroom.

A Code of Practice has been developed for students at Chapman Primary School. Parents/guardians and students are required to read and sign this Code of Practice for Students. For further information download the department's Acceptable Use Policy.
