Kit is needed for every practical lesson.

Spare kit is provided for students who forget on the odd occasion.

All pupils must have football, or rugby boots for games that are played on the school field, this is for the health and safety of each pupil.  Pupils who do not bring in the correct footwear will be given boots to wear and normal sanctions will apply.

Jewellery is the responsibility of the students.

 

Mobile phones and electronic equipment

None of the above is permitted inside the school building or in lessons.  Mobile phones are to be switched off in lessons.

Such items will be confiscated if misused.  Mobile phones and electronic equipment are the student’s own responsibility.

 

Energy drinks

No cans of high energy drinks, such as Red Bull or Relentless should be brought to school

 

Aerosols

Please do not bring these into school.  They can seriously harm some students who have asthma or breathing difficulties.

 

Behaviour for Learning card

Every student will be issued a card at the beginning of every new term.  Staff may sign this card if students behave in an inappropriate manner.  This may include not wearing the correct uniform.
