Equipment

Pupils are expected to attend school every day fully equipped and ready to learn. The following items are essential and must be brought to school on a daily basis:

  • A sensible school bag for exercise books, text books and A4 size folders
  • A Pencil case, which contains: black/blue pen, purple pen, pencil, rubber, sharpener, ruler, compass, protractor and a set of coloured pencils.
  • Pupil planner, which must be filled and kept up to date.
  • A calculator.

The school cannot accept responsibility for such items including mobile phones and personal music players and the use of these on the school site is not permitted. Expensive personal belongings should NEVER be brought to school. Electronic devices either being used on school premises or misused off premises will be confiscated by staff and, where subject to an investigation, may be stored in the safe for a prolonged period or handed directly to the police.

Other items such as perfumes, makeup, nail varnish, tippex, permanent markers, jewellery, hoodies, and leisure wear are banned items and must not be brought into school. All items such as these will be confiscated by staff and may only be collected at the end of the half term. Where pupils are repeatedly having items confiscated, parents will be asked to collect the items from school.

We operate a zero tolerance approach to fizzy or sugary drinks, such as "Lucozade", "Oasis" or "Coca Cola", and also to dangerous items such as aerosols and smoking paraphernalia; any such items will be disposed of by staff members.
If you require clarification regarding any equipment / personal belongings queries, please contact the school office in the first instance.
