The Aspire Academy Trust is committed to supporting positive mental health and the Aspire Mental Health Policy is available below.
The ‘Leading a Mentally Healthy School’ training programme has been developed by Health Education England (HEE) and the School Development Support Agency (SDSA), in partnership with an expert group of educational psychologists, education consultants and mental health organisations and responds to the areas highlighted in the recent Green Paper – ‘Transforming Children & Young People’s Mental Health Provision’ (December 2017).
If there is change in your address or telephone number please inform the office immediately, as we may need to contact you in an emergency. Please telephone or send a note if your child is suffering from any infectious illness - if in doubt, please ask in the office for advice.
Please inform us if your child has Head Lice ("nits").
First aid is given in the event of an accident, but if a doctor’s or hospital visit is thought to be necessary, where possible, you will be contacted.
Please inform us if your child suffers from asthma.
The school cannot give medicines unless parents fill in a form. The form is available at the office.
Please bring the exact dose in a sealed labelled container. We do not administer aspirins.
Written notification is required if a child has to leave the school premises for a medical or dental appointment. Parents MUST report to the office and the secretary will bring your child to you in the Reception Area.
Fist aid equipment is kept at a central First Aid station and a number of staff are trained in First Aid.
It is very important that the office is made aware of your telephone number at home and at work, or an alternative method of contacting a parent should the occasion arise.
