The Palmer Catholic Academy

Parent consent

There are a number of consents which we need to obtain from both you as the parent/carer and also the students themselves. These consents remain in force for the entire time that your child is at the Academy unless you make written reference to the contrary.

The academy may take students on short trips within lesson time as part of the curriculum. These trips are supervised by staff and will normally be for part of the day only. Please tick YES to give consent for your chid to take part in academy visits or NO to withhold consent.*
Students at the academy takes part in a variety of activities that involve students being photographed. These can be for press releases, marketing materials and use on our website and social media. Please indicate YES to give consent for your child’s image to be used appropriately or NO to withhold consent.*
As you may be aware, aspects of Sex and Relationship Education are taught in the academy. These lessons are covered by experienced teachers who understand Catholic teachings in these areas. Each class will have at least one lesson appropriate to the maturity of the students. Topics are taught in a manner that will encourage students to have due regard for moral considerations and the value of family life that lies at the core of the ethos of the academy. Throughout their RE lessons they will receive further teaching advice and guidance on relationships. Please indicate YES to give consent for your child to participate in these lessons or NO to withhold consent.*
Once students are aged 13 or over, we are required by law to pass on certain information to providers of Youth Support Services as this organisation has legal responsibilities regarding education and training of 13-19 year olds. We must provide the student’s and parent’s name and address and any further information relevant to the Young Person’s services role. The student (once over aged 16) or parents can request that no information beyond name, address and date of birth be passed on. I am happy for all information to be passed on. Please indicate YES or NO .
The academy uses the services of the BEP Group (Business Education Partnership) in providing work experience placements. BEP require details of the student’s name, address, date of birth and parental contact details. I give my consent to this information being passed to BEP*
