In Case of Illness
Please do not send your child to College if they are unwell. After being at home as a result of illness or for any other reason, you must give your child a note of explanation for the appropriate Key Stage office on the first day they return to College:
It would of great assistance if you could telephone the following numbers between -
8:10am and 8:30am, on each day of illness:
Key Stage 3: 01395 255635 / 255600
Key Stage 4: 01395 255651 / 255679
(Please leave a message if prompted/there is no reply)
Absence and Sickness Notes:
These are required for all students and should be handed to Tutors on the day of returning to College, even if the College has been notified by telephone during the course of the absence. When an absence note is not provided a text or email of enquiry will be sent home from the College.
You are legally responsible to ensure that your child attends College.
Unwell at College / Medical
It is vital that parents complete the data collection form sent from College at the start of the year, so that we know who we should contact in case of emergency. Students must tell a member of staff that they are feeling unwell. Students who are genuinely unwell will be cared for by a College first-aider. If the student needs to go home Parents/Carers will be asked to come into College to pick up the student from the site - not a nearby location.
Please Note: Academy Staff are not permitted to send children home if they are unwell unless the child is collected by a nominated / named adult. Medication should not be brought into College unless a signed medical form has been completed for the College. Parents/Carers of children with medical conditions will be asked to confirm details of their child’s condition at least annually. See the attachment below for the medical form.
Medical Appointments during College time.
Students must have a note for any such appointment from a Parent/Carer. The Parent/Carer must pick up their child from the College site - not a nearby location.
