Lunchtimes and Breaktimes As most of you were aware we trialled on Friday stopping pupils taking food out of the café area at lunch time. The result of this was there was a lot less litter on the corridors and around school. From TODAY onwards food bought in the café is to be eaten in the café area at break time and lunchtime with the exception when there is a BBQ in the quad where the BBQ food can be eaten in the outside quad. Thank you for your cooperation on Friday – you were all amazing and followed the instructions given to you by staff. Working together we can make lunchtimes and breaktimes a litter free area for everyone

There are times when you might feel you are in trouble and you are not sure what to do for help. Particularly when you are "on line". This logo is at the bottom right hand side of the school website. Click on it and it will give you lots of information, for you or someone else that you are worried about. It also gives you direct access for help should you need it Ask your form tutor to click on it and take a few moments to show you all the different sections and also the link to Childline. Childline will deal with anything you are worried about, not just cyber stuff. Both CEOPs and Childline can get help to you quickly.
