Inhaler consent form:
If your child requires an inhaler in school, you must provide the inhaler alongside a consent form and the medical form that is supplied with the inhaler. Please note that it is the parent and carers responsibility to ensure that their child's inhaler is in-date and in school with them every day. Inhalers are kept in boxes within each classroom and are also taken out at playtimes and during PE lessons. This is to ensure that inhalers are with the child at all times.

Free School Meals / Pupil Premium:
If you are in receipt of certain benefits your child may be entitled to free school meals, saving you up to £470 per year per child. This scheme is available for school-age children and to post-16 students at a school with a sixth form or college.
In addition to this your child may also be eligible for Pupil Premium funding.
Pupil Premium represents additional funding that the government gives to schools for each pupil considered to be disadvantaged.
Poverty or low income is the single most important factor in predicting a child’s future life chances, with many pupils in low income families having low attainment by age 16. The Government believes that the Pupil Premium is the best way to address these underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
