Suppliers and stockists

As we continue to drive standards in the academy, we are focused on our ‘Ready to Learn’ elements of our Culture Code. An important part to this is ensuring that students are equipped with the right equipment. As a minimum, this should be:

  • their Character Card
  • Home learning Planner
  • black pen
  • green pen
  • rubber
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • suitably sized school bag

Should a student not have an item of equipment, we will provide it to them but should they then lose equipment, it will be noted as a negative point in their Character Card.

Personal possessions

To prevent loss, please avoid bringing valuables, including jewellery of monetary or sentimental value, as the school cannot be held responsible for loss or damage of these items which are against the school uniform policy.

Make sure you keep purses, keys, etc. with you at all times.

Name/label all personal items.
