Some practical reminders and notices for the coming week.  We have been working on some of the practical basics of school life - uniform, phones and homework - with students over the past couple of weeks and we just want to avoid arguments and conflict so that we can all focus on teaching and learning.  As I say to the students - all schools (indeed all communities) have rules!  We are a kind, friendly, safe, supportive place for staff and students - that is essential for everyone's wellbeing.  Part of that is abiding by the rules that govern the organisation of the school.  Thank you for your help and support with this.
