Update to Safeguarding Policy
In this new era of living with COVID-19, we have updated our risk assessment to ensure that we do everything that we reasonably can to keep children safe at school and to safeguard their emotional and mental health. We have recently updated our safeguarding policy. If there is anything you want to discuss in relation to these matters please do not hesitate to contact me.

Notice re Masks
As from 19th October, students are required to wear masks throughout the school, whenever they are unable to socially distance. They are not required to wear masks when outdoors. Please ensure that your child has a mask, which should be blue/black or surgical. If your child has an exemption, please let us know. Please see below for FAQs re masks.
Student Arrival times if using public transport:
We have been asked to encourage all our pupils to cycle and walk to school to avoid the crowding that occurs on public transport. From September, if your child has to use public transport s/he should arrive at staggered times, by Year group, as follows: Year 7: 8.00 - 8.15 am, Year 8: 8.15 – 8.30 am, Year 9: 8.30 – 8.45 am, Year 10: 8.35 – 8.50 am, Year 11: 8:50 am; and Year12/13: 8.40 to 9.00am. However, those who walk to school or cycle can arrive any time before 8.50 am. The school day will remain the same - pupils should be in school for registration and lessons will start at 9.10 am.
