Although we do the best we can, we do not have suitable facilities for children who become unwell at the academy. If your child appears to be ill we will contact you. Please, do not send your child to the academy if you think they are unwell. If your child has a serious or recurring medical problem please ensure that you inform us. You should also make a note of it on your child's admission form. Parents who wish prescribed medicines to be administered at the academy must give clear instructions if this is to be done and send in only the required dose in a plastic container NOT the whole bottle. Always keep us informed of any change of address or telephone number, and especially of arrangements for a second contact should you not be available.
The academy doctor, nurse and dentist all make regular visits to the academy. They carry out routine eyesight, hearing tests, and dental inspections. Only in some cases will children require a full medical and you will always be informed of this and invited to be present.
PE, Games and Swimming
These are a normal part of the academy curriculum. If your child is unable to take part for any reason, then please provide a note, otherwise they will be expected to participate.
It is now a legal requirement for schools and academies to record the reason for a child's absence. Please would parents help us to comply with this by ensuring that a note explaining the absence is always provided and the academy are informed by 9.00am on the first day of any absence.
