Naming school uniform
The student's name should be marked on all items of school uniform, including all PE kit.
Books and Equipment
Students are responsible for the books and other items of equipment which are issued to them. If these are lost, they are expected to pay the cost of replacement. Students should have their own pens, pencils, rulers, erasers, coloured pencils or thin felt tipped pens, and such necessary maths equipment as a protractor and a pair of compasses.
Three items which are particularly valuable to the students are a good English dictionary, a bi-lingual dictionary (German-English/French-English), and an up-to-date atlas, and it is hoped that all students would have access to these at home. The Collins Gem or Oxford Mini Dictionaries are recommended. The Philips Modern School Atlas is recommended and can be purchased through school (Geography Department).
Books etc should be carried to and from school in a bag or case.
PE equipment should be separated from books when carried in bags.
Students should generally bring a filled water bottle for use during the day.
Students are expected to look after their own property, while in the school, and members of staff cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to items. Valuables such as radios, tape-recorders and jewellery should not be brought into school. Mobile phones must remain switched off in school and we will shortly be adopting the county policy on mobile phones in school.
Jewellery is discouraged for safety reasons, however one pair of ear studs, one ring and one necklace (worn under a blouse/shirt) are permitted. Watches may be worn.
Body piercing (nose, tongue, lip, tummy-button etc.) is not allowed in term time. If students have this done during the holidays the studs must be removed during term time.
Hair - natural colours/suitable styles for work are required.
Any property handed to the staff for safe keeping should be marked with the owner's name, or put into an envelope or other container so marked.
Students do NOT leave any money or valuables in the changing rooms, unattended schoolbags or cloakrooms. These can be handed in to the school office for safekeeping during PE lessons.
Students are encouraged to use a locker and details may be obtained from the office.

Students should contact the PE staff.
