If a student is absent from school please inform the school by phone on the first morning of the absence. Please provide a note on your child’s return to school, even if you have left a message.
Students should be punctual. Students arriving late must sign in at reception. Students who are late will be given a detention and students may be required to remain in school for up to 30 minutes after the end of afternoon lessons without prior notice.
Out of School Appointments
Students who go to the optician, clinic, dentist, hospital, etc. must have an appropriate appointment card or letter to give to their tutor during morning registration. They will be given a form which sets out details of the visits. At the time of leaving school the student must report to the School Office. The student should have the form with them when they are out of school. On returning to school the student must report to the School Office. Please make every effort not to make appointments during school time.
Change of Address
Parents/carers are asked to let the school know immediately in writing of any change of home address, telephone number, places of work and emergency contact information.

Reporting to Parents
A number of parent/carers consultation meetings are held each year to discuss a variety of issues including student progress.
If parents have any concerns at any time about their child's progress they must tell us so we can help. There is always a member of staff available to talk to you.
A newsletter is sent to parents each term. This gives an account of what has happened during the term and details of forthcoming events and activities. See our Newsletters page.
