Attendance Policy 2021-22




Please do not send your child to school if s/he is unwell, but phone the school on the first day of absence. If a child becomes unwell during the day we will contact you if they have a raised temperature, have been physically sick or obtained an injury that requires a hospital visit. Minor accidents and injuries are dealt with by a trained member of staff and recorded using 'Medical Tracker'. All accidents and injuries suffered at school are reported to and monitored by the Governing Body.


Administration of Medication


Parents are generally encouraged to schedule their child’s medication so that they don’t need a dose during the school day. For example, a child who is on antibiotics to be taken three times a day can usually take all three doses outside school hours.

If, however, your child does need medication during school hours, the following guidelines must be followed.

1. Only prescription medication should be brought into schools. This includes antibiotics, asthma inhalers, AAIs , insulin syringes and so on.

2. Medications must be brought into schools in their original container, as dispensed by a pharmacist, labelled with your child’s name. They must include instructions for administration, dosage and storage, as well as possible side effects. In some cases, schools will accept written instructions from a parent,

3. You must provide written consent for your child to be given the medication.  You will need to complete our Administering Medication in School form every time your child brings a new type of medication to school; it’s also likely to be reviewed annually.

4. All medications must be in date.

5. You must collect any leftover medication that your child no longer needs, or medicines that have passed their expiry date, from the school. This should be done routinely at the end of every term.

Statement for Parents

On the Use of Reasonable Force

If staff become aware of, or have a need to be involved in, situations where a child may be at risk of hurting themselves or others, or if the behaviour of a child seriously disrupts good order in the school or causes damage to property, staff may need to take steps to intervene physically. In such circumstances staff will follow the school’s policy for dealing with such situations. Any parent wishing to view this policy may do so on request.



Equal Opportunities

St. Antony’s is committed to providing a broad and balanced education for all children, regardless of race, culture, gender, ability or disability, as far as resources permit.

We realise that our children come from a wide range of backgrounds and we are sensitive to the needs of the child who may not have experienced the traditional family unit. Every child is unique and special and the school strives to meet the spiritual, academic, emotional and social needs of each one. We encourage our children to believe that every avenue in life is open equally to all. As part of our global community, we wish to foster attitudes of tolerance, understanding and respect for all humanity. The values of equality and justice are gently nurtured. Being aware of the many cultures, religions and traditions around us, the children are encouraged to broaden their knowledge and understanding of the rich tapestry of life.



Steps to Prevent Disabled pupils from being treated less favourably

Following discussions with the parents before admission, the Headteacher will seek to put in place a strategy to ensure that any child with disability is treated no less favorably than any other pupil. A similar approach will be taken in respect of any child who becomes disabled when already a pupil of the school. The Headteacher will ensure that the class teacher of any disabled pupil are fully briefed to enable the pupil to receive proper tuition.
