Child Illness

If your child is clearly unwell in the morning, please do not send them to school in the hope they will get better during the day. Please telephone the school on 01252 879222 or email and notify us that your child is ill.

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is a sum of money given to schools for every child who has received Free School Meals in the last six years.  We also receive additional money for children in local authority care, adopted under certain circumstances and for children who have a parent in the Armed Forces. Pupil Premium information can be found on our policies page.


Request for leave of absence for the purpose of a holiday will only be granted in exceptional circumstances.

Late to School

If your child arrives at school after registration has taken place, he/she must sign a late slip at reception.

School Books

Please encourage your child to look after the exercise books and text books that are issued.  A record is kept of the condition of books when they are issued and students will be asked to account for any unnecessary damage.

Homework Drop In

The After School Homework Drop in Facility is available for all students who would like to come and use the Library School Room to complete their homework or coursework.  It is open every afternoon during term time from 3.10 pm to 4.30 pm


Students should understand the importance of meeting deadlines for handing in homework and assignments.  Failure to hand a piece of work in on time can lead to a backlog of work and consequent problems.  When work is set the deadline should also be noted.  Parents are asked to support students in meeting work deadlines.


The school’s Attendance policy can be viewed on our policies page, please refer to it for more details regarding holiday and illness.
