Student Care (EMI)

Information from the Student's Medical Assistance (EMI)

EMI is a continuation of MVC and BVC to follow the children's physical, mental and psychosocial development. The goal of the school is to follow the students' development, preserve and improve their mental and bodily health as well as to promote healthy living habits. EMI will work for the child to receive the support in the school that the child needs by inform and teach the educational staff. And collaborating with other authorities and outside-school support efforts so that all children have the opportunity to reach the goals in school and receive their right to education.

EMI will also work to ensure that the school is a safe and secure place with a working environment that is optimal for learning.

In order to ensure your children's health and safety, it is essential that health forms and immunizations offers to be filled in and returned to EMI as soon as possible after dispatch. If you do not want the immunization offered, still the form must be sent back  to the school as this needs be documented. All forms sent via EMI must be sent to the school nurse with the signature of both guardians.

The School Nurse´s at the schools meet all children according to the following schedule, however, all efforts from EMI are voluntary.

School nurse reception

We try to have open school nurse reception during school hours. For current times, see posters in the school.

We only help out with simpler health care issues, other complaints are referred to the health center, close-up or emergency room.
Students who take any medicine must bring these to school. It is good for students with recurring problems ex. headache, menstrual pain brings medicine to school.

It is important that guardians inform the school nurse if there is a change in the student's health status. The nurse and doctor have a duty of confidentiality and information to other staff can only be given after the consent of the guardian. EMI does not receive information from a health center or hospital. The only exception is if we have sent a referral according the student.

You may contact us by email or phone. The health preventive work is an ongoing process throughout the school period.

We hope for good cooperation in the future.

Kindly,
The School Nurses
