Doctors, dentist and other appointments.

If a student has an appointment and needs to sign out during the day they will need to bring their letter to the Student Hub in the morning so they can be given a slip to show to their class teacher. They will then sign out at the Hub when they leave. The student hub will be located in the main office at the student entrance to the school.


Signing into school

If a student arrives after morning tutor time has finished due to a late bus or other appointment they will need to sign in at the Student Hub.
