Our well-equipped Health Centre is staffed with two nurses and a visiting. It is located on the ground floor, off the main foyer, providing quality medical service to our students and staff. It features a waiting area, observation beds and medical equipment of the highest standards including a nebulizer, glucometer, ENT diagnostic set, sphygmomanometer and oxygen cylinder.
One of our nurses is always present during the school day to administer first aid as and when required. If children are unwell while at school, they will be cared for at the clinic until collected by a parent, guardian or carer. We do not allow children to go home via taxi unless they are escorted by a parent, guardian or carer.
Please ensure our nurses have a copy of your child's up to date vaccination records and you inform them of any allergies your child has, before their first day with us.
Health services that are in line with the KHDA, the Dubai Health Authority School Health Guidelines and DBS's policies are also offered to students such as tips and advice on general health, healthy lunch boxes and snacks, injury prevention, immunity boosting and staying fit.
DBS follows the guidelines set by the Healthy Eating Initiative and we ask parents to refrain from letting their children bring any fizzy/soft drinks, sweets, chocolates or anything in glass containers into school.
We have water dispensers throughout the campus to encourage all our students to drink plenty of water during the day.
Additionally, due to the prevalence of nut allergies, please do not let your child bring any products containing nuts to school (including all nut butters and peanut butter). We are also a pork-free school.
