School Rules

The highest standards of personal behaviour are expected from pupils both in school and on the way to and from school, and in other school activities.

 

  • 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.
  • Mobile phones should be kept switched off and must be out of sight on school site, from arrival at the start of the day until 3.15pm, unless they are being used with staff permission.
