There is an update on Pupil Safety in the news section.
Dear Parents, please look out for information on an exciting day of enrichment and extended learning opportunities for your son/daughter on Wednesday 21st October for our challenge day entitled 'Journeys'.
Please find the new Safeguarding tab where you can access all the information regarding safeguarding. We have also updated our Getting it Right guidance to support all pupils in making sure they engage fully in their learning and making progress in every lesson.
A young carer is a person under 18 who provides or intends to provide care for another person. As many as one in 12 pupils in the UK could be a young carer. Often, these children are caring for relatives without their teachers’ knowledge, slipping through the net, undetected by support services. The caring role they carry out means they have unique experiences and demands that impact on their capacity to enjoy and achieve at school. In the Policies section of the website you will find how the school supports pupils who are identified as Young Carers. If you have any queries – please contact Mr Wills.
SPOTLIGHT - ATTENDANCE LESS THAN 90%
The law requires that every student should attend school and be on time (1996 Education act). Students will be considered to be a persistent absentee if their attendance falls below 90%. Where there is no improvement in attendance then the school will if appropriate take legal action.
