Breaktime And Lunchtime
Where can I go at breaktime and lunchtime?
You can either go to your House area or outside. In the summer, you can also go onto the field.
What if I am hungry?
You can buy snacks at breaktime and full meals at lunchtime in your House area. You can also bring things in from home, although canned drinks chewing-gum and sweets are not allowed at any time.
Can I see my friends in other Houses?
Not in their House areas, but you can always arrange to meet them outside.
Can I leave the School grounds?
Again the answer is no, unless you go home for dinner. If you need to leave the premises you must have permission from your Head of House.
What if I need to go to the Doctor/Dentist?
If you need to go to the doctor or you have a dental appointment, you must bring a note to your Head of House at the beginning of the day. You will be given a piece of paper called an ‘Exeat’ which you show to your teachers, then take to the School Office to sign out. You must never leave the school without telling somebody in the School Office.
Where are the toilets?
In your own House area. You should not use the toilets in other House areas.
What if I go home for lunch?
You must bring a note from your parents/carers saying this is what they want you to do. We will issue you with a Home Dinner Pass as long as there is someone at home to look after you. You will not be allowed to go to a friend’s house or into town for lunch.
What if I want to buy my lunch?
We operate a cashless catering system, your parents will be informed on how this works.
What if it is something I don’t like?
There is always a very good choice, you will always find something you like.
What if I bring my mobile telephone to school?
Use of mobile phones is not permitted on the school grounds at any time. If students wish to bring their phones into school they must be switched off and kept in their lockers at all times. Any mobile phones found on students, during the school day, will be confiscated.
Personal headsets, for example iPods, MP3 players, etc., should not be brought into school.
