At Andoversford, we are working hard to ensure that we produce as little waste as possible. This means that we are 'paper-free' wherever possible. We send information by email and you can respond with an email too. If you do need to complete a form, you can send it back electronically to save paper.
Parents are responsible for making sure their children attend school regularly and on time. If your child will have a planned absence from school, please complete an Absence Request form before they are due to be off school. Absence can only be authorised for a few reasons, such as to attend a medical appointment which cannot be made outside of school hours. In the case of illness, you can email or telephone the school to let us know that your child will not be attending.
Administration of Medicines
Medicines should normally be administered at home and only taken into school when absolutely necessary (where it would be detrimental to the child's health, or would greatly impact on a child's school attendance if the medicine were not taken during the school day). In these circumstances, the school may be able to administer medication during the school day if:
Please read and complete the Administration of Medicines Agreement for medication to be administered to your child during the school day.
- the medicines have been prescribed by a medical practitioner
- the medicines need to be administered in excess of 3 times per day
- the medicines are in date and in their original container, as dispensed by a pharmacist
- the medicines have a pharmacy label identifying the child by name and with original instructions for administration, dosage and storage
Medical Conditions and Allergies
If your child has a medical condition, such as asthma or an allergy, please make sure that you let us know. We can support children with their medical needs by sharing information. You can find the forms here:
