As a new academy, which opened in January 2018, Waterside Academy has not yet been inspected.
We are always keen for parents to use Ofsted's Parent View to register their thoughts.
Our predecessor school, Rowans, was inspected in November 2016 and the report for that inspection can be found here... Ofsted Report November 2016School Ethos and Values Statement
Individual Healthcare Forms
At Waterside we want to support children with long term, serious medical conditions. Qualifying conditions include diabetes, serious/acute asthma (simply needing an inhaler in school ‘just in case’ would not require a healthcare plan) or allergies requiring an epipen. If you are uncertain at to whether your child’s condition qualifies, Mr Mills-Bishop will be able to talk it through with you.
If you feel your child does qualify, we ask that parents fill out an individual healthcare form and come and discuss it with Mr Mills-Bishop If you prefer, Mr Mills-Bishop can fill one out with you. Once your child’s needs are understood, we will ensure all adults in the school, who need to know, are aware and know their part in keeping your child safe and secure.
Healthcare plans are reviewed yearly, or sooner as needs change.
