At Kingswood we take the health and safety of our students seriously. As such we use an electronic system named Operoo. Operoo stores medical and emergency contact details for our students. We use Operoo in the best interest of the children whilst also reducing the burden on parents to fill out the same information on multiple paper forms throughout the year. To login, please refer to the email you will be sent from Operoo. This will occur when your child commences school.
Operoo offers the school and families the following:
The data can only be viewed via an authorized staff member with their login and password making data more secure than paper forms.
The Operoo system is located in a highly secure environment in Australia, and the Operoo data will always reside in Australia.
It uses sophisticated security measures to keep data safe and it is backed up every hour.
There is an automatic audit trail.
The data in Operoo will never be shared with any other person or group without your consent.
Parents control the data that is available and can remove access at any time.
UP TO DATE EMERGENCY INFORMATION:
You have the ability to update the data at any time and ensure your child’s details are correct. This should be done whenever there is a change in information (such as a new emergency contact number or new medical condition).
It is important to ensure these details are up to date before a camp or excursion to ensure staff are well prepared to care for your child.
Operoo allows our staff to access your child’s emergency details on mobile devices while they are on excursions and camps. This saves time and reduces medical errors in emergency situations.
Data is more secure than paper forms. If a mobile device with Operoo data is lost or stolen the data cannot be viewed as it is in an encrypted (scrambled) format.
MULTI-USE CARE PROFILE FOR FAMILIES:
Once you have shared the care profile for your child with the school you can share it with other people who you entrust to care for your child such as family, friends and sports coaches. You can also create care profiles for other family members.
You, and others, can download the free Operoo app on Apple and Android devices and have access to your family care profiles.
If your child’s club uses Operoo you will be able to share the same care profile with the club. You only need to maintain one care profile for your child and it can be shared with our school, clubs, grandma, family, friends, baby sitters…anyone you trust…and they are all instantly updated when you update the data.
