Beckfoot Trust is an organisation that links a group of local Bradford schools together so that they can collectively improve the life chances for young people within their schools. Our aim is to create a group of truly remarkable schools each with a genuine comprehensive intake. They will be wonderful places for young people to learn and grow up in. We want to make a difference. We want to create something special.

Medical Appointments

Appointments

We have seen a rise in parents taking their child out of school for medical appointments for the entire day. We would prefer that medical appointments are made outside of school hours, but if this is not possible, please ensure your child is in school either before, or after the appointment. Please do not be offended if we ask for evidence of the appointment; this is simply good safeguarding practice. 

Students arriving and leaving as a result of medical appointments will need to be signed in and out by parents.

Medical Advice Booklet

Please see our Medical Advice Booklet which outlines advice for different illnesses. We are hoping that this will reassure you about when it is okay to send your child to school; for example, if they simply have a cold. If your child is mildly unwell, you can send them to school, safe in the knowledge that we can look after them and that we will always contact you if their condition worsens. Please note that 'tiredness' is not a reason to keep a child at home, and this will result in an unauthorised absence on your child's records.
