We are delighted to welcome your family to the William Perkin Church of England High School community. All inductions are facilitated by our Admissions Department who can be contacted at [email protected]
Before reviewing any induction information, please read the Twyford Academies Trust Privacy Notice for Students and Parents.
Privacy Notice for Students and Parents
Please read through each section of this page carefully for all key information relevant to your child's induction to William Perkin.
You are required to review the following mandatory documentation prior to your induction meeting and bring to the meeting signed for our records:
School calendar notice
We strongly encourage parents & carers to access and review the school's electronic calendar on Copia, which will reflect the most up-to-date amendments throughout the year.
Shortly after accepting an offer of a place at William Perkin CoE High School, we invite your family (parent(s)/carer(s) and child) to the School to meet with your child's future Head of Year, Head of their Key Stage, Assistant Headteacher and Associate Headteacher to discuss their transition process from their current school to William Perkin CoE High School.
Prior to arranging an induction meeting the Admissions Department requires your child's most recent grade report to begin preparing a timetable with appropriate course choices. You are also required to review the following mandatory documentation prior to your induction meeting:
Mandatory documentation for all Parents & Carers to submit to the Admissions Department:
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: https://twyfordacademies.org.uk/welfare
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. All medicine must be clearly marked with the chemical labeling of the prescription including a valid expiry date. If your child suffers from asthma, we require an inhaler on-site as well as a spacer (even if your child does not usually use one). We should like to mention that we are unable to provide your child with common pain medication (i.e. Paracetamol and/or Nurofen) – the School is only able to supervise the administering of prescribed medication from your child’s GP.
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.
