Important reminders for Parents:
The school has strict expectations for uniform that all pupils must adhere to. Uniform list is on the school website and in Pupil planners. Some pupils seem to have decided not to follow the guidelines and are interpreting them in their own way. The following reminders are designed to clarify things for all pupils and parents:
Þ School skirts should be knee length and should be made of non stretchy material.
Þ Trousers should be straight, not tightly fitted around the ankles and should not have any form of studs on them. (i.e they should not resemble jeans or leggings)
Þ School shoes are compulsory and should not resemble black trainers or daps. Boots are permitted in the winter terms only but should always be worn under trousers.
Please do not comment on other pupils’ wearing different attire, as this may be for medical reasons which require a doctors note in September.
Holiday Request Forms
Any holidays in term time cannot be authorised. Holiday Request forms are available from main reception and need to be completed. .
Session 6 and the School bus
All pupils who travel to and from school on the bus should take part in an organised activity during session 6. Pupils are not permitted to be in the school unsupervised during this time. Any pupil who does not attend a session 6 activity or homework club will receive a C3 detention.
The LPA school day is from 08.40 am until 1600. This includes session 6 which is when detentions are scheduled. The school allows pupils who have behaved during the day and completed the work set for them to leave at 1500 if they do not wish to attend a club during session 6. Those pupils who have received a C3 are expected to attend a detention. Attendance at detentions is not negotiable as they are held during the official school day. All parents will be informed of a detention 24 hours before via In Touch. We would really appreciate the support of all parents with the setting of detentions as they are part of the school behaviour policy of LPA. If you have a query about a detention please contact the subject teacher in the first instance to clarify the situation rather than telling your child that they do not have to attend. Also, please be aware that detentions can be given without following the C1 to C3 process if behaviour has been exceptionally poor and the Head of Year deems it to be appropriate.
