To register your child for enrolment onto the School Information Managements System (SIMS), we require the following details: basic pupil information, sibling (if applicable), parental consent, family home/contact, ethnic/cultural, medical and current school. The profile provides guidance notes and a review of our data protection notice prior to beginning the profile.

To complete the profile you will need the following information to hand:

  • Photocopy of the pupil's passport and birth certificate (PDF or JPEG format)
  • Current/previous school's address and contact information
  • GP or allergy specialist clinic address and contact information

And if applicable:

  • Medical prescriptions (including valid expiry dates)
  • Electronic copy of any EHC plan and/or SEN recent, relevant professional reports concerning your child, such as occupational therapy, speech therapy, educational psychology, specialist teacher, CAHMS, etc. (PDF or JPEG format)

The Emergency Contact & Welfare Profile must be completed by all parents and carers prior to your child's start date: 

Regardless of the severity of your child’s condition or medical needs, we require your child’s medicine on-site on the first day of school. Parents must provide the school with necessary in-date medication, in its original packaging with chemist labelling with dosage instructions and expiry date information. May we remind parents that pupils must always carry their own in date medication in school at all times, this includes asthma inhalers/ spacers and  2 adrenaline auto-injectors. The School is able to supervise the administering of prescribed and non- prescribed medication. If medication is temporary, a form is to be completed with full details.

If your son/daughter has any additional needs, please advise us of this before your induction meeting so we can be as prepared as possible to meet their needs before their start date. Please ensure that you bring to the interview a photocopy of any recent, relevant professional reports concerning your son/daughter, such as occupational therapy, speech therapy, educational psychology, specialist teacher, CAHMS etc. to be discussed with the leadership team.
