RISE works closely with parents and the young person during transition to alternative provision. A Parent Pack will be provided with the necessary forms for completion and details of the contact numbers and information on what to do/ who to contact if your son/ daughter is sick, for example.
This will also include the Home/ School Agreement which parents and the young person are expected to read and sign. RISE and the alternative providers commissioned by RISE have high ambitions and expectations for all young people and a belief that, with the right support, each and everyone will and can thrive and achieve. The support of parents is vital in this. Regular reviews are held every six weeks to which parents will be invited. If there are any concerns, then the parents will be contacted swiftly to discuss. Parents are also expected to reinforce the code of conduct with their son/ daughter; this includes regular attendance and punctuality.
If, at any time, you are concerned about the welfare and/ or progress of your son/ daughter, please contact the provider in the first instance. If you are not satisfied or wish to discuss your child’s placement in more detail, then please contact Sonia Kay, RISE Programme Lead.
In the event your son/ daughter is ill and unable to attend school:
Please telephone your child’s education provider if your child is unable to attend school, giving the reason for the absence as early as possible in the school day. If you child has transport please contact as per instructions below.
If your child is entitled to transport please make sure any absence is reported to transport/ RISE to avoid unnecessary costs:
Students, who are not behaving in an appropriate manner during the journeys, and despite receiving adequate warnings, may have their transport withdrawn. Persistent non-attendance for the taxi may also result in the taxi being withdrawn.
Smoking/eating in the taxi is not permitted at any time.
