mobile phones
Mobile Phones
  • The school policy states that mobile phones (also includes other electronic devices) must not be brought into school.
  • If a phone is heard, used or seen during any point in the school day it will be confiscated and taken to reception until the end of the day
  • In the first confiscation incident the student will be able to sign it back out again.
  • For the second and further occasions where a phone is confiscated from a student the phone is to be collected by a parent/carer.
  • The students at the Becket have excellent attendance, this year it stands at 96.2%, target for next year is 97%
  • Important that students attend school
  • A student that has 95% attendance misses 3 months of school over 5 years
  • If your child is ill or cannot come into school, please contact the office before 8.30 to report the absence
  • Any long term medical concerns that could have an impact on attendance again please let the Progress Leader know along with providing any appropriate medical documents
  • We do not authorise any holidays or personal trips, any unauthorised absence may be passed onto the Local Authority who then may issue a fine. This is in line with the Schools Multi Academy Trust
  • Lateness can affect your attendance and your attainment.
  • We ask that students arrive at school at 8.30 ready for an 8.40 start to the school day
  • If they are late students are to sign in at the student services and will have a break detention (in less there is a valid reason)
  • 15 Minutes late each day = 8 days absence over a year
lunch canteen
  • Cashless catering – biometric information taken from finger (takes several points on finger to store this data)
  • Take this information on the visit days
  • Top up can be done on line or with a cheque or cash brought into school.
  • Letters will go out before the end of the summer term with log in details for SQUID to facilitate on line top up.
  • First two weeks we will arrange for students in year 7 to go to the Canteen at 12.05 rather than 12.15
