It is impossible to anticipate fashion trends and it will be the decision of the Senior Management Team re the suitability of adopting current styles, e.g. inappropriate hairstyles, especially those which may cause danger and discomfort in the school environment. These will not be permitted.
USE OF MOBILE PHONES BY PUPILS
Extract from School Policy
Pupils are allowed to carry mobile phones for use in an emergency on the way to and from school. However, they do not have permission to use them during the school day and they must be switched off at all times, including break-time and lunchtime.
Should a pupil have her mobile phone out of her bag during the school day, it will be taken from her and placed in the school safe to be collected by a parent or other responsible adult the next day.
In order to collect the phone, a letter will be sent home. This letter must be presented at reception and the phone will be returned (the day after confiscation).
Extract from Homework Diary
Mobile phones should be switched off at all times and kept safe in school bags. Pupils may not use MP3 players, IPods etc. on the school premises.
