New Year 7 Induction Evening

Tuesday 1st July 2014

your child s first day

Your Child’s First Day

Your child’s first day at Hollingworth will be on Wednesday 3rd September 2014.

Pupils on arrival will be shown into the Theatre for an introductory assembly.

They will spend time in their tutor groups as part of an induction into the new building.

This will include information about fire procedures and other aspects of Health and Safety as well as help in finding their way around.

We aim to start lessons sometime later on that first morning.

attendance and punctuality

Attendance and Punctuality

We encourage all pupils to attend everyday and arrive on time for school. Excellent attendance and punctuality is recognised through the school rewards system.

Pupils must arrive by 8.40am each day.

Pupils arriving between 8.45am and 9.00am will be required to attend a break time detention. Pupils arriving after 9.00am and those who fail to attend the break time detention will be required to attend a detention, after school, on the same day with their Head of Year.

It is essential that we know of any absence from school. A note/telephone call is needed to confirm absence. The school phone number 01706 292800 is in the pupils’ planners.

A truancy call system operates whereby a phone call home is sent after morning registration, for those pupils who have not registered, without giving prior notification of absence.

Generally, authorised absences are only agreed under exceptional circumstances during term time.

Lunches

We keep all pupils on site. We are able to supervise them and we (teachers and parents/carers) know they are safe.

The Atrium restaurant is available for hot and cold snacks as well as traditional meals.

Facilities are also available for pupils who bring their own packed lunch.

Lunchtime is 30 minutes, staggered over 3 sittings.

Bullying

If there is a problem, pupils should report this to their Form Tutor or their Head of Year (Mrs Aubin).

Year 10 Peer Buddies will be linked to each tutor group. They will meet with tutor groups to help present awards. If pupils have problems they can also tell their Peer Buddies.

If a problem persists, please contact Mrs Aubin.

We do take bullying issues seriously and will help resolve problems that are reported.

electronic equipment

Electronic Equipment

Hollingworth recognises the safety value of mobile phones, which is why these are allowed in school.

To prevent disruption in the classroom all mobile phones and electronic devices must be switched off at 8:40am and put away for the school day. This includes breaks and lunchtimes.

Please do not phone your child during the school day. Please contact us via the Pupil Reception line.

If pupils break this rule the mobile phone/electronic device will be confiscated. These can then be collected at the end of the day by the pupil, from Pupil Reception.

If an item is confiscated on a third occasion, we will ask parents/carers to come and collect the device from school.

belongings and lockers

Belongings and Lockers

Pupils are responsible for their belongings.

Lockers are allocated in September on a buddy system to store coats, equipment, etc.

Each pair will be given a lock and a key. If a key is lost there will be a charge of up to £1.50 for a replacement lock.

We strongly advise against bringing valuables into school.

If items are stolen it will be a matter for the police and parents/carers, not the school.

Coats are not allowed to be worn around school and should be either in the locker or the pupil’s bag during the day.

homework

Homework

The school has a policy of setting regular homework.

Core subjects (English, Mathematics, Science,) are usually set each week. Foundation subjects are usually set once a fortnight.

Pupils should record homework in their Planner.

We ask that parents/carers sign the Planner every week to help monitor that homework is being completed.

The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) is open to everyone from 8:15am in the morning for help with homework. It is also open after school 3pm – 4pm Monday to Thursday and 2pm – 4pm Friday.

planner

Planner

These are checked weekly by Form Tutors and occasionally by Heads of Year.

Planners are given out in September and last for the whole of Year 7. If one is lost or covered in graffiti then a replacement will cost £2.00. The Planner will contain additional information about the school as well as advice for pupils. Parents/Carers should read it to get “a full flavour” of the school.

There is a section in the Planner for parents/carers to write absence notes (to explain a pupil’s absence). The Planner is also a good way of communicating with the Form Tutor.

reward referral system

Reward & Referral System

Green slips are given for good work, excellent homework, outstanding attendance and positive attitude to learning.

These positive points contribute to a weekly Pupil and Tutor Group of the Week award.

It should be noted that it is attitude to learning rather than ability that is rewarded.

We are currently investigating a system of rewards called Vivo. Vivo points are linked to vouchers for various national stores/outlets.

Reward & Referral System

Red slips are given for poor behaviour or attitude in school and yellow slips for poor or incomplete homework.

Red and yellow points also trigger detentions and may result in other sanctions.

Referral slip points are regularly checked by Form Tutors and Heads of Year. Parents/carers can have access to this information online, following the Consultation Day/Evening on Monday 6thOctober 2014.

school detentions

School Detentions

Hollingworth has a policy which says that pupils MUST attend after school detentions.

Parents/carers will be given 24 hours written notice. It is the child’s responsibility to pass on the detention slip to parents/carers.

This policy applies to ALL pupils.

Detentions may be given by subject teachers or departments. Heads of Year have an overview of all detentions and will become involved where a child’s behaviour is becoming a concern.
