Reminder: Please sign Student Planners! One of the easiest ways of keeping in touch with your child’s progress is to make sure that you have signed their planner. You can leave notes in the planner if you wish to communicate with your child’s tutor or subject teachers and keep an eye on how much homework  is being set.

We monitor our student’s planners every week and, when we see your signature, we know that we are supporting each other with your child’s education.

Students Absence

It is important that we are all mindful of the importance of students being in school every day if they are to make good progress. Parents are, therefore, not permitted to take students abroad in term time. Permission can be granted by me only in special circumstances and only if the student has attendance of at least 95%. Students’ appointments should not be made during the school day as their absence will affect their learning time and attendance.
