Administration of Medicines Home School Agreement Relateen Counselling Service School Fund Letter School Nurse Letter Year 10 Monthly Guide Year 11 Monthly Guide D&T Letter Happy & Healthy


September 2012

High Importance Dear Parent/Carer Administration of Medicines. In response to East Sussex County Council guidelines, this school has a policy regarding the Administration of Medicines. This policy can be viewed on the school website www.willingdonschool.org.uk. Parent/Carers are reminded that there is no requirement for school staff to undertake this responsibility and staff who do so are acting in a voluntary capacity. You are kindly requested to assist the school by co-operating with the school policy. Our aim is to encourage the independence of our students and support those students who require medication during school hours. The school will not however, undertake invasive procedures, including the giving of injections. An emergency response procedure will be agreed with parents where necessary, i.e. the use of epi-pens. The school will not administer medication e.g. antibiotics if 3 times or less a day. Where possible, drug regimes should be arranged so that doses are not required to be given to students during the school day. The school will administer medication where it is not possible to rearrange drug regimes i.e. antibiotics that require 4 doses a day. Parents/Carers are required to provide the smallest practicable dose, in the original container (label to give details of medication, dose, and child’s name). If you wish to keep the original box/container it will require asking the doctor/pharmacist for two boxes/containers to be made up. The school will administer regular/long term medication to students whose medical condition, if not managed, could limit access to education. Contact with parents/carers will be required to complete the necessary forms and possibly an individual Health Care Plan. The guidelines from East Sussex County Council, also stipulate that schools can no longer administer Asprin based drugs, unless they have been prescribed by a Doctor or Medical Practitioner. Again these must be in the original container with the pharmacy label on the container, clearly specifying the dose details. All medicines in the form of tablets and capsules MUST be taken with a drink of water which will be provided for your child. If your child refuses to comply with this request, the medication cannot be


administered OR we will ask you as the parent/carer to come into school to sign a disclaimer as tablets/capsules can become lodged in the throat potentially causing damage to the health of the child.

NO medicines can be administered unless the statutory forms are completed. This is a legal requirement. Notes or telephone calls on the day can no longer be accepted as an agreement to administer medication. Forms can be collected from Student Support Office which is open each school day from 8.00am. Parent/Carers will also be requested to collect all outstanding medicines at the end of the academic year as our medical cabinets now have to be cleared completely by the end of each Summer Term. It is the Parent/Carers responsibility to dispose of any unused medication that is held at school. Should your child require medication at school during the following academic year you will then need to contact the Student Support Office to arrange for new forms to be completed for that academic year. I hope the above information has been useful and it is our policy that we continue to enable the administration of medicines in school. However I do need to emphasise that our school staff are acting in a voluntary capacity, and that you as parents/carers retain the legal responsibility for administering medicines in respect of your child, at all times. Yours sincerely

Andy Webb Business Manager

September 2012 Dear Parent Relateen Counselling Service Relateen, provided by Relate (the national relationship counselling organisation) is a dedicated independent counselling service for 10-18 year olds, currently offering support to Willingdon students one day per week. Relateen offers an opportunity for young people to talk openly and honestly about what is worrying them. They are able to express themselves to someone without fear of reaction, gain an insight into how emotions affect their behaviour and can begin to learn the skills necessary to deal with events in the future as adults. Relateen offers all clients confidentiality (with the exception of Child Protection issues). All counsellors have enhanced level CRB checks and have undergone special training on working with children and young people. Parental consent for Relateen service will be assumed, unless you return the tear-off slip below. Yours Sincerely

September 2012 Dear Parent/Carer School Fund At the beginning of a new academic year we write to invite you to make a contribution to the School Fund. This fund is outside the remit of County Hall and is controlled by the school. It is used to finance all whole school student centred activities, to improve the school environment and to provide additional activities to supplement the curriculum. To demonstrate the benefits that the fund can make to the school, the fund has in recent years, contributed towards the cost of the refurbishment of the girls’ toilet facilities, helped in raising funds towards the cost of a new school minibus, as well as subsidising off site curricular activities and supporting other extended services that the school offers. One development that school fund contributions are currently being targeted at, are awards and prizes for student achievement, for all year groups, awards for which are held at the end of the Autumn, Spring and Summer Terms. If you are able to contribute, we suggest a contribution of £10 per family. Money can be paid directly to the school, with cheques payable to “Willingdon School Fund”. Thank you in anticipation and for your continued support. Yours sincerely,

A Webb Business Manager  ..............................................................................................................................................

I enclose a donation of £10.00 as a contribution towards the School Fund (cheques to be made payable to “Willingdon School Fund”) Signed: ............................................................................... (Parent/Carer)

Fax: 01323 644687 THE COMMUNITY SCHOOL NURSING SERVICE Now that your child is transferring to Secondary school, we would like to tell you about the service offered by the Community School Nursing Service. Year 7 During Year 7, your child will be introduced to the Healthy Child Programme 11-19 years. He/She will be offered a health care interview. Both you and your child may receive a questionnaire from the School Nurse Service about your child’s health and well being. Based on both of your responses we may then see your child for a face to face health care review. It will include a discussion about all aspects of your child’s health. We will follow up with you only when necessary. Year 7-11 School Nurses work very closely with the PHSE team in the school, working within the classroom delivering health messages through the PHSE curriculum such as stop smoking, selfesteem and bullying, relationships and sexual health. Year 8 During Year 8, we will be offering the HPV vaccine to female students. We will give you more information about this once your child has started at secondary school. We work closely with the staff at school and sometimes may need to share information about your child in order to provide the best possible support. We also work closely with agencies that work within the school. All schools have a ‘drop-in’ service offered by their named School Nurse for students, parents and staff. Your child can come and see us at any time to discuss any concerns he/she may have. It is a confidential 1:1 where they can access appropriate information and support. Generally, we do not expect to contact you after a ‘drop-in’ session; however, there will be times when we do. Some students may need to have School Nurse input such as educational needs, child protection or ongoing health concerns needing review and you will normally be involved with these. We can offer home visiting to support you both and your child. If you would like to know more about what the Community School Nurse Service offers within the Healthy Child Programme 11-19 years, please contact her on the number above.

September 2012 Dear Parent/Carer, Design & Technology Department For many years parents have contributed towards the costs of materials in Design & Technology. This has enabled us to deliver a wide variety of projects and ensure that students are able to design and make products of a good quality using the best possible materials. We believe this helps our students to value their work and in our experience, parents wish to retain the products that their children design and make. At the end of the Summer term, many of you will have visited our ‘INSPIRED’ exhibition - a celebration of our students’ successful D&T Lighting outcomes from our Product Design GCSE course. We have estimated that the basic cost of materials and components this year will remain the same. KS3 Students

£5 per year or £15 for the whole of KS3

KS4 students

Dealing with frustration and anger Talk about different ways of calming down e.g. counting to 10, breathing deeply, listening to music. take time out to think (this can be practised). If you find yourself in an argument with a young person - use the same methods to calm down, – deep breathing – step back – think. One idea to solve a problem may not work immediately be open to other ideas. For details of courses and activities for parents, carers and other adults working with young people contact your school.

Helping Young People be Happy and Healthy throughout Secondary School !


Helping Young People be Happy and Healthy throughout Secondary school Parents and Schools work together for young people to be happy, confident and successful in life We recognise that academic success is linked to physical and emotional development, well being and self esteem. Social and emotional skills are essential to success in all aspects of life. Skills such as:  Managing change

 

Dealing with anger and frustration

Developing good relationships with other young people and adults  Making good choices  Resolving conflicts

 

Understanding self

Identifying appropriate goals and maintaining motivation If you are living or working with a young person in secondary school the next few years will be an exciting and occasionally bumpy ride. Through this time the young person will grow and develop into the adult they will one day become. We need to work together to help young people understand emotions and know how to use them constructively.

Parents know their children best and contribute to the development of these skills throughout their lives. Other adults are important role models for these young people. In schools social and emotional skills are taught throughout the curriculum and through opportunities that take place beyond the classroom. How we can help all young people Communicating       

Find a time to talk Give the young person your attention Don’t always expect an answer you want to hear Don’t belittle concerns You don’t need to solve the problem, listening can be enough. Try not to interrupt Equally encourage the young person to take time and listen to others when life seems confusing.

Providing and Sharing experiences  Encourage participation in activities  Plan and do things together

 

Find time to share experiences. Encourage participation in activities to widen interests and social groups.

Giving praise and Celebrating success Praise makes us all feel good and boosts our self esteem – give 4 positives to every negative – catch them being good! Managing and keeping rules Boundaries are important for young people to feel safe – agree and set rules, be realistic and consistent with sanctions. Motivating We all need to have dreams and be Motivated, to have a plan that is broken down to small achievable targets. We have to stick to the plan, even when things get tough. Adults need to help young people to take responsibility for their dreams. Let children choose their own goals – they are likely to stick at something they really want to do. Talk to them about making their goals realistic! Dealing with frustration and anger There are a lot of different pressures on young people today and it is important not to ignore or overreact to young peoples’ frustration and anger. Help your child to know the first signs of anger in themselves before they lose control.
