Medical Information

The Federation believes that ensuring the health and welfare of staff, students and visitors is essential to the success of its Academies. Parents/carers are encouraged to provide up to date allergy and medical information to HWSF staff as soon as possible; this includes any changes to information already supplied.

Guidance on Infection Control in Schools

This link details the Government guidelines in relation to infection control. It includes information on how long to keep your child away from school if they are suffering from a contagious illness.

Allergen Awareness

HWSF believe in ensuring the health, safety and welfare of its students and staff, and are committed to ensuring that those with allergies, especially those likely to have a severe reaction (anaphylaxis), are supported in all aspects of academy life. HWSF are not in a position to guarantee a completely allergen free environment, but rather to minimise the risk of exposure. Our academies will encourage self-responsibility and will plan for an effective response to emergencies.


Please go to Student Welfare for our Allergy Awareness, First Aid and Medical Needs and Medicines Policies. If you have any questions about any of these policies, please call 0203 772 4555 or email
