DRINKING WATER POLICY
This policy outlines the School’s responsibility to provide adequate and appropriate drinking water facilities to pupils, and staff, and its responsibility to ensure that strict water drinking practices are in place to reduce the risk of spread sickness and infection.
The Headmaster is responsible for health of SISS employees and anyone else on the premises. This includes the teachers, non-teaching staff, pupils and visitors (including contractors).
Parents and legal guardians are responsible for ensuring that their children bring to school on a daily basis a clean and suitable water bottle for the sole use of drinking water.
Class teachers and all school staff are responsible for ensuring children have adequate time to fill their personal water bottles at regular intervals during the school day. Class teachers are also responsible for ensuring pupils have access to their water bottles at appropriate and regular times during the school day.
Purchase of water bottles at school
Pupils who persistently come to school without a water bottle will be sent to the school’s office where they will be provided with a new one by the school. Parents will be invoiced for the issue of the water bottle.
Support and understanding from parents with regards to this policy is essential in ensuring we, as a school, have the ability to reduce the risk of the spread of germs and infectious illnesses within the school.
The General Manager is point of contact for any parents or members of staff who have any concerns about the school drinking water policy.
