FAMILY AND EMERGENCY CONTACT DETAILS
We MUST have at least two contacts in case of an emergency.
Please let us know of any changes in contact details as soon as possible. It is essential that the school can make contact with you quickly, if needed.
Please note in the case of parent separation, unless there is a Court Order, both parents should be detailed in order of priority.
Please provide us with any other information you feel may be necessary to ensure your child’s happiness in school :
Has your family or child had contact with any of the following:-
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.
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)?
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.
We comply with the requirements of the Hertfordshire Schools Asthma Policy and request that you complete the enclosed questionnaire if your child suffers from asthma.
The information will be used by staff in school to provide appropriate care and support during school hours. If your child is diagnosed with asthma and require medication to be kept in school you will need to complete an Asthma Maintenance Plan.
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.
Children are not permitted to have/carry any medication in their bag during the school day.
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 DfE recommends that those with parental responsibility decide the ethnic background for primary pupils. The Information Commissioner (formerly the Data Protection Register) 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 child.
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. The information will also be passed on to future schools to save it having to be asked for again.

SAFE USE OF IMAGES
Increasingly, schools are using photographic and video images of children to enhance learning and life within the school. This is important in taking a creative approach to teaching and learning and in making lessons and activities as enjoyable as possible for children.
Members of staff may use photographs/videos in presentations, in subsequent lessons or to celebrate successes through their publication in Newsletters, school events, curriculum work, display purposes, productions, trips, local newspapers and sporting events. Photographs/ videos may also be used on the School Website and School Prospectus.
The Bonneygrove E-Safety Policy is available to view on the school website.
