A reminder about pupil behaviour, trips and clubs

Dear Parent,

Could I please remind you of a few procedures relating to behaviour, trip and clubs:

Firstly, we would welcome any help with supervision on educational trips. If you would like to help, please speak to your child’s class teacher. You will also require a ‘Volunteer DBS’.

Secondly, if any child receives 2 red cards for:

  • causing physical harm to another child
  • damaging property
  • showing serious disrespect towards ANY member of staff in school

they will not be allowed to go on any residential trip that year or on any other non-educational visits, for example, the Christmas pantomime.

As parents, I’m sure you can appreciate that if a child is a danger to themselves or others, it is a huge responsibility and risk to allow them to attend a residential trip. As Headteacher, my main concern is that children enjoy the experience of a residential trip and that staff feel confident and happy accompanying them.

I would also like to remind parents that if a child is issued with 2 yellow cards in one week they will not be allowed to attend their clubs for that week only.

If you would like a copy of our School Visits or Behaviour Policy, please contact the office.

Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs D Eccles
