Day of Action for Climate Change Parents and pupils may be aware that Friday 20th September will mark another day of global action and protest, to raise awareness and understanding of the many complex issues surrounding global Climate Change. Kernow Learning Trust recognises the vital importance of educating our pupils about the developing climate emergency, and have committed as a Trust to ensuring that all of our schools work to ensure that our pupils know that they are Global Citizens with a responsibility for our global environment. Every school in the Trust has a ‘Global Learning’ Leader and all schools are currently engaging in training to deliver ‘Global Learning’ to their staff. We cannot encourage pupils to be absent from school on this Friday, due to our duty of care for our pupils, but we have decided to enable pupils to show their solidarity with the Climate Change movement through a series of initiatives in our schools in the forthcoming weeks and months ahead. Our schools will teach more about the challenges that we face through issues such as plastic pollution, recycling and saving energy. We are very proud to have Eden as a member of our Trust and so consideration of the challenges that will face our children’s generation, and how they can influence future developments through their actions is never far from our Trust discussions.

Medical help, medicines policy and intimate care policy

Please keep the school updated of any medical needs or changes regarding your child to ensure we can meet these needs appropriately.

If your child needs to be given prescribed medication on a regular basis please come and complete an Administration of Medicine form at the office. Otherwise we encourage you to give medicines before or after school but if it is still absolutely necessary a consent form must be completed giving very clear instructions about what should be taken and when.

Should your child suffer from asthma please ensure that the child’s teacher is informed and that asthma pumps are labelled, kept in a polythene bag and the instructions for use are available. Asthma forms will need to be completed, these are available from the school office and once returned your child will be entered onto the Asthma Register.
