  • Unless permission has been given, pupils must not leave the school premises during the school day.
  • When moving around the school, pupils should walk quietly, keeping to the one-way system. Running is only permitted on the fields and play courts.
  • In fine weather, pupils should remain outside before 8.40am and at lunchtimes, unless they are in a designated eating area or making their way to see a member of staff.
  • Valuable items should not be brought into school unless they are absolutely essential; any such items remain the responsibility of the pupil and should be kept out of sight.
