Taster Day application for Friday 3 July 2020
Please read the following information before filling in the Year 10 Taster Day form below
We would like parents and carers to understand an important difference between their young person attending the BHASVIC Taster Day and a normal day at their school or a school-run trip or visit.
As a college, we have an open-access site and do not staff or monitor comings and goings of students at entrances/exits. Our entry points are not staffed, gated or locked. We are aware that this is different to most secondary schools.
In addition, unlike a school-run visit or trip, college staff are not closely monitoring the movements of students or their attendance throughout the event. As the Taster Day is a one-off event, the college will not have mechanisms for reporting absences to parents/carers. Instead, we ask that your young person lets you know their movements to and from the event and if leaving the college site during the event, where relevant.
Due to these differences, we ask for parents/carers to complete the application form for the Taster Day and ask for confirmation of understanding and consent for their young person to attend such an event.
We would like to reassure all applicants that the Year 10 Taster Days are highly successful and Year 10 attendees are very diligent in following college staff requests to stay on premises or notify our Reception if they intend to leave the college campus for any reason.
Finally, because this application process requires the parent/carer to apply on their young person’s behalf, we ask that the student is given the choice of subjects and that the parent/carer will follow the young person’s school absence procedures.
By completing the application form for your young person, you will be agreeing to them spending the day at BHASVIC and understand that the college is an open-access and open-sited institution, where entrance/exits are not staffed and monitored.
By completing the application form for your young person, you will be confirming that you understand your young person will be asked by college staff to remain on the college premises throughout the day and to follow their timetable, but that if they choose to leave the college premises this will not be monitored by college staff.
