NAMES OF ADULTS WHO ARE PERMITTED TO COLLECT YOUR CHILD
In order to minimise security risks at the end of the school day, it is essential that the school know who is authorised to collect your child from school. It is expected that all children in KS1 or younger will be collected from the classroom and not from the gate.
It is strongly recommended, in most circumstances, that older brothers and sisters in the school do not collect younger siblings.
MODE OF TRANSPORT
Has your family or child had contact with any of the following:-
MEDICAL / ASTHMA INFORMATION
Are your child’s immunisations all up to date?
Does your child suffer from any of the following conditions? (please tick all those relevant)
Is your child taking regular prescribed medication at home (outside school hours)?
|Name of Practice / Surgery||
We comply with the requirements of the Hertfordshire Schools Asthma Policy and request that you complete an Asthma Maintenance Plan when you child joins the school, which will be updated each academic year.
The information will be used by staff in school to provide appropriate care and support during school hours. Inhalers must be clearly labelled with your child’ name and date of birth, and remind you that it is the parents/carers responsibility to ensure that inhalers are in date and replaced as needed. If your child has an inhaler in school we MUST also have a spacer for this in school.

If your child has a special medical dietary requirement (as confirmed by a GP) or requires a special menu for cultural or religious reasons, parents/carers MUST apply on the Herts Catering Limited (HCL) website (https://specialmenu.hcl.co.uk/application/registration), before they will be able to have a meal in the school canteen. Please speak to the School Office if you require any further guidance.
A first language other than English should be recorded where a child was exposed to the language during early development and continues to be exposed to this language in the home or in the community.
If a child was exposed to more than one language (which may include English) during early development the language other than English should be recorded, irrespective of the child’s proficiency in English.
In the case of an older pupil who is no longer exposed to the first language in the home, and who now uses only another language, the pupil or parent can determine which language should be recorded.
Our ethnic background describes how we think of ourselves. This may be based on many things including, for example, our skin colour, language, culture, ancestry or family history. Ethnic background is not the same as nationality or country of birth.
The DfES recommends that those with parental responsibility decide the ethnic background for primary pupils. The Information Commissioner (formerly the Data Protection Registrar) recommends that young people aged over 11 years old have the opportunity to decide their own ethnic identity. Parents, or those with parental responsibility, are asked to support or advise those children aged over 11 in making this decision, wherever necessary. Pupils aged 13 or over can make this decision for themselves.
Please study the list below and tick one box only to indicate the ethnic background of the pupil or child named overleaf. Please also tick whether the form was filled in by a parent or the pupil.
Any information you provide will be used solely to compile statistics on the school careers and experiences of pupils from different ethnic backgrounds, to help ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to fulfil their potential. These statistics will not allow individual pupils to be identified. From time to time the information will be passed on to the Local Authority and the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) to contribute to local and national statistics. This information will also be passed on to future schools.
