Children need to arrive at school on time in order to start their day in a calm, orderly way by 8:45am
We open the school gates at 8:30am in order to ensure that the children are in their classes on time.
It is also important that you collect your children on time at the end of the school day. For safety reasons we will not allow a child to leave school with an adult we do not know.
Absence and illness
If your child is unwell for one day, parents should telephone the school, and send a brief note detailing the reason for absence when the child returns to school.
If your child is unwell for more than one day parents should telephone the school giving the reason for absence and stating an expected return date. If your child needs to attend a medical appointment, the school should normally be notified three days in advance, in writing.
Health and Safety
We view Health and Safety as a high priority at Immanuel and St Andrew. The Governors and Staff regard the safety and security of your child at School with the utmost importance. Our site has several entrances and doors and it is important that we keep the site secure at all times.
Please ensure that the information on your child's emergency contact form is kept up to date and that you advise us immediately of any changes. Blank forms are available from the School Office.
We are not generally allowed to administer medicine to children at school. If your Doctor considers that your child is fit to return to school but must receive medication during the school day this can only be arranged by agreement with the Headteacher. A note from your Doctor will be needed.
Generally, medicine that is required three times a day can be administered before school, after school, and in the evening.
If your child has asthma and uses medication regularly or intermittently, we are willing to keep the medication in School, so that children can take their own medication. Please collect a 'School Asthma Card1 from the School Office and take it to your child's Doctor. Please return the completed card to the School Office together with the prescribed medication for us to keep in School. If your child's treatment changes at any time please let us know and collect a new card from the School Office.
Other medical conditions
If your child has any special medical conditions that you consider we should be aware of, please speak to the Headteacher and give us a written note of the details.
Across the country every School has a designated teacher responsible for child protection, and the Headteacher has a legal duty to report to Social Services any children who appear to be at risk and are giving cause for concern.
Our policy on inclusion is that every stakeholder in the school community has a right to equality of opportunity and we aim to provide this irrespective of religious persuasion or ethnic origin.
