Safety Policies

Food
Atomic School does not provide food or drink for students thus reducing the risk of allergic reactions in susceptible children.  For the same reason, our venues are food share-free zones.  You are therefore required to provide your children with morning tea, lunch and a water bottle.  Please explain to your child that they are not to share items with other students. 
 

Transport
Parents/Guardians are required to drop off their child/children at the classroom, or meet our Atomic School representative at the pre-assigned location, at least fifteen minutes before class begins. They are required to collect their child/children directly from the classroom after the lesson finishes.  Atomic School Pty. Ltd. duty of care is in operation only during advertised workshop hours.
 

Emergency Contact
In case of emergency, parents are required to write their name and mobile phone number on the back of their child’s nametag.  We will call parents in case your child requires their support.
 

Blue Cards
All our instructors have current Blue Cards or are exempted because they are teachers registered with the Queensland of Teachers.
 

Vaccination
All Atomic School staff are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and comply with the Queensland Government’s regulations about COVID safety.
