 Lateness
Students will have to report to the school office their reason for lateness and this will be recorded. 

 Trips
Payment accepted on ParentPay only.  You must register for this at www.parentpay.com

 Appointments
When a student has to sign out for an appointment, they must have a hard copy of a note from a parent/carer.  Students will not be allowed off-site without this.  The student should keep the note on them, so they can show their teacher in order to leave the lesson.

Students should make their own way down to reception to sign out.

 School Closures
We will notify parents of school closures as soon as possible by text message and by posting an alert on the website.  There is also a County Council website dedicated to informing parents about school closures.

 Mobile Phones
May be brought into school but we cannot be responsible for any damage / loss or theft.  They must NOT be used during the school day without express permission from a member of staff and will be confiscated if they are.  Should your child’s phone be confiscated, you will be contacted to collect it from the main office.  We will not return the phone to the student.

 Parking
Parents should not drive onto the school car park, this is for the use of staff only.  Dropping off in a morning, parents should use the marked parking bays on Rowley Avenue and students should stay on the footpath.
Sixth formers may park on the car park but should leave their vehicle details with reception.

 Lost property
Is kept in reception – reminder to parents/carers to label PE kit and uniform, we can then easily return lost items to students.

 ParentPay
Is the online payment and communication system used by our school.  Parents must register and activate their accounts in order to receive communications from school and pay for trips, meals etc.

 Go4Schools
This is an online reporting system that will allow you to track your child’s progress and behaviour.  You must register in order to gain access to your account. 

 Reports
All school reports are now available online in Go4Schools.  Paper copies may be produced by arrangement and must be collected in person from the main office.

 School Dinners
We run a cashless payment system which means school dinners must be paid for in advance on ParentPay and students should register for biometric readings.
