The following is a list of guidelines and expectations for staff to help develop consistency and continuity of approach.

  • Children should not be on the premises before 8.30am unless they have been asked by a member of staff to arrive earlier, or they are attending breakfast club.
  • Jewellery should not be worn or brought to school. The wearing of earrings is discouraged, as they can be quite dangerous. If earrings must be worn, they need to be studs.
  • To take part in PE and Games, children need to bring their PE kit to school on the correct day. If they do not have the correct kit there may be a chance that some spare kit will be available in the medical room. Children may not take part in the sessions without the correct kit and they will be sent to another class taking some appropriate work with them. Parents will be notified if this occurs more than twice.
  • Children should not bring into school anything of value and they should not leave money in desks, coats or bags. Children should not need to bring money to school except for tuck shop, trips or dinner money.
  • Children should not bring in toys from home. This includes bats, balls, trading cards, game boys or any other type of game.
  • No child should leave school in school hours without permission.
  • Children are not allowed to bring sweets, fizzy drinks or snacks into school.
  • School uniform is to be worn at all times.
  • All clothing must be marked with the child’s name.
  • Regular attendance is important. A child should not be absent except in the case of illness or family emergency. If a child is absent, the school should be notified by telephone and a written note should be brought on their return.
  • Taking holidays during the school term is positively discouraged. If a child does need to be removed from school during term time, parents will need to seek the permission of the Head Teacher.
  • Absence unsupported by a note of explanation is classed as unauthorised and will be recorded as an official statistic.
  • The school policy is to promote equal opportunities and good race relations between persons of different racial groups. To this end we would seek to check any racist behaviour.
