ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

MOBILE PHONES Mobile telephones are not permitted on site during the school day. They must be switched off and kept in bags or lockers until the end of the day.
LOCKER KEYS Students are able to rent a locker for £5, which is non-refundable and renewable each academic year. Payments to be made by end of June to secure for September.
HOLIDAYS IN TERM TIME Absence from school can seriously disrupt a student’s continuity of learning and so, in line with the recommendation of the Department for Education and the advice and guidance from the Local Authority, Barnwood Park will not authorise holidays in term time except in exceptional circumstances, at the Headteacher’s discretion. Any holidays taken without approval will be deemed as unauthorised and should this exceed 10 sessions, referral will be made to the Education Welfare Service, who may issue a Penalty Notice of up to £120 per student, per parent.
STUDENTS ARRIVING LATE

If students arrive late to school on 2 or more occasions in a term, they will be required to complete a lunchtime detention in the first instance.  Parents will be notified of this.

If lateness persists, or a student fails to attend the afterschool detention, parents will be contacted and further sanctions will apply.
