The Board has de­cided to in­clude in the health man­ual a for­mat for ver­i­fy­ing the records of im­mu­ni­sa­tion of a child dur­ing ad­mis­sion to a school.

CBSE has pub­lished health man­u­als, which cover is­sues re­gard­ing san­i­ta­tion, hy­giene, en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion, safety, emer­gency med­i­cal ser­vices, con­tin­u­ous and com­pre­hen­sive eval­u­a­tion ( CCE) in con­text of health and phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion, eco clubs, health and well­ness clubs, sci­en­tific skills and CCE school-based as­sess- CBSE HEALTH MAN­U­ALS HAVE CHIL­DREN’S MED­I­CAL HIS­TORY AT THE TIME OF AD­MIS­SION, WHICH IS UP­DATED PE­RI­OD­I­CALLY ment certificate.

The health man­u­als have the child’s med­i­cal his­tory at the time of ad­mis­sion, which is up­dated pe­ri­od­i­cally to record the con­tin­u­ous med­i­cal sta­tus of the child.

“The health of a child is im­por­tant and for that they must eat healthy to stay healthy,” Mona Singh, prin­ci­pal of Guru Nanak Public School, Sarabha Na­gar, said, adding, “In the school re­port card, the child’s health re­port is in­cluded. A doc­tor vis­its the school ev­ery­day to ex­am­ine stu­dents and we keep par­ents in­formed about the health records of their wards. A med­i­cal at­ten­dant is al­ways avail­able in the school to at­tend to the stu­dents, In case of a ma­jor in­jury, he will be taken to the near­est hospi­tal.”
