Parents who have difficulty financing school uniform are invited to contact the Head of Year, in confidence, for assistance.

 

Mobile phone and music players 

Students are discouraged from bringing any mobile phones or other electrical equipment to school. The school recognises that some parents/carers, for reasons of safety, may wish their daughter or son to bring a phone to school. Any device remains the responsibility of the student and the school cannot be held liable for any loss, breakage or theft.

If students and parents/carers chose to bring any such device to school the following expectations will be enforced.  All mobile phones or other electrical equipment must be kept switched off and out of sight at all times on the school premises. Any use of phones is prohibited – this includes making or receiving calls/ text messages / photographs / videos; listening to music; using as a calculator / conversion software; and checking the time.

In case of emergency, or where there is a particular need, students should ask at the front office to use a phone.

If a student is seen using a device at school it will be confiscated. Multiple offences will result in parents being asked to come to school to collect the device.
