Dear VI Form Students, Parents & Carers,

Thank you, if you helped to make a subject or whole school film to support the our Virtual Open Day. These are now all live on the VI Form website. If you see, via social media, our advert, please could you like / share it so that students across the Island can make an informed choice about their post 16 destination.  Obviously, I’m biased, but I do think we promote independence and trust in our young people. The dedicated building means we can operate very differently to any other school on the Island, the central location and two ‘Goods’ from Ofsted speak for themselves.

If you could please also watch this short film, it has some other important messages: https://drive.google.com/file/d/149iPzbjcP9jnTj1VViijKNpkmi6mrtuY/view?usp=sharing (The embedded video at the end of this film has subtitles – it can be viewed with audio here: Tea and Consent – YouTube)

Please take a moment to read the following information:

The Island VI Form are continually updating Student Medical Records. We would appreciate your feedback ASAP to notify us if you have an Epi-pen. Please email nicola.drage@iwef.org.uk

Current Government guidelines suggest that all educational establishments should store an  Epi-pen (provided by any student that holds a prescription) on the premises. In addition to this, a named Epi-pen should be carried at all times whilst attending.

The spare Epi-pen should not be used as an alternative to bringing your own pen in on a daily basis, this is in the event of an emergency situation occurring and your Epi-pen failing in a time of need.

In the event of an emergency, the spare Epi-pen can be accessed via an unlocked, staff supervised, cabinet which is located in The Student Services Office. Provision is made daily to secure this cabinet after college hours.

Keep safe and enjoy the weekend.
