Please can we ask for your continued support in ensuring that all students have the correct uniform and kit for school. This includes all equipment required for successful learning in lessons.  We would also ask that all uniform and kit is clearly and permanently labelled to help minimise loss and ensure that in the event of this happening we are able to return uniform and kit to the correct child.

Design & Technology

For Food Technology lessons, pupils are required to bring their own ingredients and suitable containers for the product they are cooking. Children will be advised of this in advance.

Protecting Personal Property

Children should not bring expensive items of personal property to school.  The school cannot guarantee the safety of such items and The Trust cannot accept responsibility for the loss of such items.  When pupils are required to bring money into school e.g. for non-uniform day, this will be collected at the earliest opportunity.  However, we advise that the majority of payments required to school are made via School Gateway unless otherwise stated.

We also request that all items of personal property are CLEARLY AND PERMANENTLY LABELLED to support our ability to return misplaced items back to their rightful owners.
