Attendance

The threshold at which students are classed as persistently absent is 90%. Therefore any student with an attendance under 90% will be referred to Educational Welfare Services. If attendance does not improve this can lead to prosecution and a criminal record. Should your son or daughter be absent from school please notify the school office at the earliest convenience with the reason. Please be aware that we do not authorise holidays.

School Uniform

Our school uniform is supplied by Skoolkit.

 

The uniform consists of:

  • A school polo top

  • School cardigan or hoody

  • Black school trousers for boys and girls

  • Plain black leggings

  • Black skirt, of reasonable length for the girls if they wish

  • Plain black footwear.

 

The PE kit consists of:

  • Red PE polo shirt

  • Black shorts (no leggings please)

  • Optional PE school hoody

Free School Meals

The funding received from the government with regards to Pupil Premium enables us, as a school, to offer a wide range of activities, services and experiences across the curriculum which will enrich your child’s education.

If your child is entitled to free school meals there is now an online eligibility checker and application form please follow this link (https://www.southampton.gov.uk/schools-learning/in-school/school-meals/free-school-meals.aspx) to complete an application. If you require assistance with this the school office are available to help you in any way possible. If your child received free school meals at Primary School this should automatically transfer to us in September. Any concerns after the start of the new school year please contact the school office.
