Synergy Multi-Academy Trust comprises ten Norfolk schools serving children between the ages of 2 and 18. Our schools work collaboratively together to raise standards and provide education of the highest possible standard, offering the best of opportunities for pupils. The Trust was initially established in 2015. We believe that all of our schools have strengths and areas to develop, and that all can improve through sharing expertise and wisdom. The Trust understands that there will be excellent practice in each school, and that every school will be able to contribute to the development of the Trust as a whole.
Illness and medicines
If your child is not well enough to attend school, please notify us as soon as possible. If your child suffers from sickness, s/he should remain at home for forty-eight hours following the end of the sickness.
If your child becomes unwell during the school day, we will contact you and ask you to come and collect your child or make arrangements for someone else to do so. If your child suffers a minor injury, First Aid will be administered by a member of school staff. A record is kept of all such instances. In an emergency, we contact the emergency services and then contact you as soon as possible. It is essential that we are able to contact you or a person designated by you on any school day.
If your child has an asthma inhaler, this should be clearly labelled with the child’s name, dosage and frequency and the child must always have this available for use in school. Even those children who have an inhaler for occasional use only ( such as during or following a cold ) should have an inhaler in school, in case the need to use it arises.
If your child has been prescribed medication which must be taken or administered in school hours, you are welcome to come into school to administer it to your child. If you wish school staff to do so on your behalf, please contact the school office and complete a form giving details of dosage, timing and frequency of administration. All medication must be clearly labelled with the child’s name. N.B. School staff are under no obligation to administer medicine to children. For reasons of your convenience, they may kindly agree to do so. A record is kept of all instances of the administration of medicines. Please inform us of any allergies on your child’s admission form, or subsequently in writing. It is important that we are able to give accurate information to the emergency services, should the need arise. If it is medically advisable for your child to miss PE / Games or Swimming lessons or to stay inside during break and lunchtimes following an illness or injury, please let us know in writing. If you are concerned about any matter related to your child’s health or development including sight or hearing, you are very welcome to discuss the issue with our School Health Adviser. Please contact the school and we will put you in touch with her direct.
