The authority of the school with respect to the students includes all occasions when the students are wearing school uniform at school, participating in a school activity outside of the school, travelling to or from school, or whenever they are identifiable as members of the school (whether in school uniform or not).
Students are required to be at school each day it is open, unless prevented from attending by sickness or any other circumstances beyond their control. Absences should be notified by telephone 375 7057 ext 237 or email to the attendance officer first thing in the morning. If this is not done, an absence note must be handed to the student’s Form Tutor on the day they return to school. Dental and medical appointments should not occur during school time if at all possible.
If a student has been absent without explanation for one or more periods on any given day, a text message will be sent to parents/caregivers notifying them of the absence at the end of that day.
Applications for leave must be made in writing in advance to the Headmaster.

Students involved in acts of theft or violence, in the use of offensive language, as well as infringements of the school’s alcohol and drugs policy are likely to face the most serious of consequences (exclusions from school could result).
