St Peter’s Primary School takes the health and safety of our students very seriously. As such we have adopted a health, safety and electronic consent form system named Operoo.
Operoo provides our school community with an easy process to communicate with parents by receiving emails.
Operoo is an innovative parent controlled electronic medical form for schools, clubs and other groups with a duty of care. It’s an electronic version of the paper based forms you’re always having to fill in for excursions, camps, etc. It provides you with the opportunity to update medical information promptly and accurately while providing the school with instant access to the emergency information provided by you. We use the Operoo system in the best interest of the children whilst also reducing the burden on you to fill out the same information on multiple forms throughout the year.
You can use a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone to enter the details including:
- Submit Absentee form for your child
- Update telephone numbers and address
- emergency contacts
- medical contacts
- medical checklist including asthma, allergies, seizures, diabetes
- health and ambulance insurance details
- notes and other care instructions from you
- and more…
Operoo will also allow us to send home classroom notices, curriculum information etc.
As a parent/guardian you will receive an invitation to join Operoo and enter details for your child/children. By following the instructions you can create your own free Operoo account and control all data about your child/children. The Operoo system stores the information on your behalf and you will be able to grant (or deny) access to your data with our school. You are also able to share this data with any other group or individual you choose (eg. your child’s grandparents, their child-minder, their sports club, etc).
From the school’s perspective, this information will only be visible by the relevant staff for your child and will be managed in accordance with the Privacy Act.
