There are many things that could happen to you to do with school. This page tries to give you some top tips on day-to-day college life.
You must always look your best. If you are not in correct school uniform you must bring in a note from your parents/guardians stating the reason why and how long this will continue. Take your note to your Form Tutor who will issue you with a Pink Uniform Slip.
If you are ill...
If you feel unwell whilst you are in college please go to Student Services.
If you are late...
Always try to get to registration or assembly and receive your proper mark. If you can't make it, go to Student Services.
If you haven't got a pen/pencil/other equipment go to Student Services before registration and buy one.
If you need to miss a lesson
If you need to miss a lesson for any reason. See the class teacher in advance. If you also need to leave the school site, see below.
If you need to leave school early...
If you need to leave school early you must bring in a note from home saying where you are going, why and when. Get this note verified by your form tutor and then show it to the class teacher at the start of the lesson. Remember to sign out at Student Services before you go.
If you need to go to the toilet during lesson
Firstly, make sure you go before the end of break/lunch. If you need to go to the toilet during lesson, make sure that you have your planner with you because the teacher will need to sign the travel pass sheet. Ask the teacher politely and they may or may not let you go.
If your parent needs to get a letter to your teacher
If your parent/guardian needs to get a letter to your teacher... get them to write a message in your planner and then make sure you show your planner to your teacher. They may reply so remember to take your planner back home to pass on the reply.
If you are being bullied
Everyone should be able to come to school without being picked on or deal with bullying, in any way. If someone in the school is making your life unpleasant, you don't have to put up with it. Your form tutor has dealt with cases like yours before. They know what to do to help. If you can't talk to your form tutor, you can email your Head of Year (Mr Cooper on email@example.com for Year 7, Mrs Jones on firstname.lastname@example.org for Year 8, Mr Castle on email@example.com for Year 9, Mr Key on firstname.lastname@example.org for Year 10, Mr Forrest on email@example.com for Year 11, Mr Jackson on firstname.lastname@example.org for Sixth Form). Please note your Head of Year will respond in person, not by email.
If you have seen someone else being bullied or harassed...
If you have seen someone else being bullied or harassed... Again, the best person to talk to is your own form tutor.
