If pupils are excused, they must still bring their kit to wear, as they must take an active role in P.E, although not physical, e.g., umpiring. Guidance for Parents The management and staff would appreciate it if the parents and pupils support the school and its aims in every respect. The co-operation of all concerned with the education of our pupils is essential for success.  If and when permission to leave the school for appointments is requested, parents are asked to collect their daughters personally or girls are otherwise not allowed to leave the School premises before 4.30pm for any reason whatsoever.  Although parents are always welcome to visit the School, they should make an appointment to ensure that a member of staff will be available at the required time.  All forms (e.g. confirmation of attending parents’ evenings, permission for school trips, the annual update of personal information, report acknowledgements, etc.) must be completed and returned promptly to the School when requested.  If parents feel that they may have missed any correspondence from the school or would like to see copies of all letters circulated they are free to ask at the Reception office.

Child Protection Policy Parents/carers should know that the law requires all school staff to pass on Information which gives rise to a concern about a child’s welfare, including risk from neglect, physical, emotional or sexual abuse.
