Using the School Planner

All students are issued with a school planner.

Your son should use his school planner to record homework and key events. If you feel that homework is not being recorded, please talk to your son and let the Year leader know.

Sometimes a teacher will want to write a note to you. You can then sign the comment to show that you have read it. If you have a question, it can be jotted in the planner.

The planner also contains information about term dates, target levels, uniform and equipment and homework timetables.

School Nurse

The School Nurse is available every Tuesday and Thursday, 12.30pm-1.15pm.

This is a confidential drop in service for students to discuss any issues they may have.

Chaplaincy team

The school chaplaincy team is always available for students and parents to discuss issues as they arise.

Staying Safe On-line and Cyber Bullying

Please read the latest government advice and the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre website which contains loads of great advice for students and parents in the Think You Know section.

Please help your son stay safe online using this resource.

Bullying

The whole school community should expect to feel safe and happy in school.  If students feel that there are issues with bullying they should never suffer in silence but either they, or their parents, should contact the Year Team.

Educate against hate

An ‘educate against hate’ website has been launched as part of a renewed drive against extremism.

The anti-radicalisation website promises to provide “practical advice to protect children from the dangers of extremism”, with information from the government and groups such as the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
It includes information on;
  • warning signs of danger
  • how parents should talk to children about extremism
  • steps concerned parents can take
This website gives parents practical advice on protecting children from extremism and radicalisation.
