Note about Chewing Gum in school
No-one should be using chewing gum on school premises at all. It causes many problems for our cleaning staff and not to mention hygiene reasons. Students who are seen chewing gum will be asked to put it in a bin and will be given a blue slip if out of lessons. If a student is chewing in class they will receive a stage.
Not in uniform?
If a student has to come to school without the set uniform for some reason they should bring a note of explanation from home, e.g. occasionally for medical reasons pupils may have to wear loose fitted clothing. Students should present their note to their tutor first thing in the morning to be issued with a green slip. Students with no note from home, who are not in correct uniform, will be issued with loan items we keep in stock. Failure to follow this guidance leads to a punishment. We are very keen to work with parents to ensure all pupils arrive smart and appropriately dressed for school.
