About health examination and medical records


The UAE Department of Health and Medical Services requires that all new students in both private and public schools have a clear health examination record filed with the school health office; this is then supplemented by further medicals in Grades 1, 5, 9 and 12.

The examination may be performed by a doctor of your choice. As part of the Admissions Process, an up-to-date vaccination record must be provided for all students. Additionally, all families must submit Health Information and Medical Consent forms on an annual basis for each child attending GWA. If your son or daughter’s medical condition changes, please ensure that we are aware of the details.

All information will remain strictly confidential and will be divulged only to those staff members who legitimately need it.
