Every student is expected to provide the following basic items of equipment for use in lessons:
Text books, organisers and specialised equipment will be issued on loan and students will be required to pay for any loss or damage to school property, including furniture and fabrics.
These items are not allowed in school: alcohol, illegal substances, legal highs, laser pens, cigarettes, e-cigarettes, lighters, matches, fireworks, knives or blades, nail polish, chewing gum, skateboards or roller skates .
Any other items may be prohibited at the discretion of staff if they pose a risk to health and safety of staff or students, or if they disturb the smooth running of the school.
We do not want mobile phones to disturb learning in school. The school has no insurance for personal items. If students bring these items into school they do so at their own risk and cannot expect valuable staff time to be taken up looking for them if they go missing and/or are damaged. Mobile phones and/or earphones and electronic devices can only be used outside of lesson at break/lunch but not when moving around the building. If they are seen or disrupt learning in lessons, they will be confiscated and usually returned at the end of the day but this may not be until 4pm or later. Students should not take pictures/video in the school or inside the school grounds.
