Medicine:

Administration of Medicine on Site

It is parents / carers responsibility to ensure that Strive is informed of the medical needs of your child. If medical needs change, it is the parents / carers responsibility to ensure that this information is passed to Strive in a timely manner.

There are strict protocols regarding pupils accessing medication during the school day.

UNIFORM:

There is currently no set uniform. Pupils must wear appropriate clothes suitable for a day at school.

MEALS:

Breakfast:

Is provided free of charge for all pupils each morning during a dedicated breakfast club. There is usually a choice of cereals, toast and drinks available.

Lunch:

Packed lunches can be eaten at Strive within the common area or kitchen. Pupils taking part in cooking classes may like to eat the food that they have prepared in class. Alternatively, Strive can provide lunch for a fee of £2.50 per day. Pupils qualifying for free school meals will be accommodated.

Any special dietary requirements will be discussed during the admissions process.

Mobile Phones:

We recognise that pupils and parents see that having access to a mobile phone is part of modern life.

 

Mobile phones have become an essential way in which parents and carers can keep in touch with pupils.  It is important however, that the use of a phone does not interfere with learning or cause a distraction or disruption to school life.

All pupils must hand their phones in at reception for safe keeping each morning. If a pupil needs to make a phone call, they should ask to use the office phone.  Pupils can have access to their phones at lunchtimes.

*Further details of the Mobile phone policy and a pupil agreement form will be supplied during the induction and admissions process.
