Illness and Accidents
If you feel unwell or have an accident you must tell a teacher straight away. Normally you will be sent to the School Office where a trained first aider will take care of you. If you are too ill to remain at school or if hospital treatment is necessary, then your parents will be contacted to make suitable arrangements.
Under no circumstances should you leave the school or go home without permission.
If you need to take medicine at school parents will need to fill our online Medical Consent Form.
Your medicine must be left with the school office. The only exception is if you have an inhaler for asthma. Those with severe asthma should keep a spare labelled asthma pump in the office.
A group of students will be given the responsibility of forming the Student Council. These students will be expected to carry out certain duties on behalf of the school and fellow students.
The Student Council will take on board any worries, concerns or suggestions that students may have. They will in turn forward this information to the school management.
Children will be given homework and expected to return it on time completed. In order to assist in the children’s academic education, parental contribution is essential.
- Students’ planners will be checked and signed by parents at least once a week. Parents are expected to support the school by ensuring all homework is monitored by parents/carers at home and returned on time.
- Parents should ensure there is a quiet supervised environment at home for pupils to complete their homework.
- It is the responsibility of the parents to ensure their child is punctual in arriving at the school (8:05am). Pupils who arrive late will be given detention after school.
- Students in Years 10 and 11 may be required to attend school on a Saturday morning for GCSE booster lesson. This is a separate compulsory provision for all students in these year groups to help them improve their skills in preparation for GCSE examinations. There will be a separate charge to this service as this will be delivered outside of school hours. Details will be provided in due course.
