To help next year’s new pupils our current year 9 pupils have answered some common “what if” questions.

What if… I am absent?

You have to catch up on all the work and tests you’ve missed. You also have to bring in an absence slip explaining why you were absent. An absence slip is the little pink slip that you can find in your homework diary.
– Sarah Hockley 9Y

What if… I need to leave school during the normal school day?

You get a pink slip from your homework diary and you get your parent or guardian to fill it in. Get a VP (Vice Principal) to sign it and then get a yellow slip from the office. You give this to your teacher when you have to go.
– Joan Moore 9W

What if… I am late?

If you are late then you will have to sign in at the office if it is after registration and go to the class that you have at that period.
– Sarah Hockley 9Y

What if… I am feeling sick?

Tell the teacher and they will give you a green slip. Go to the office and they will call home.
– Charlotte Somerville 9V

What if… I miss my bus?

Either wait for the next bus or get a lift to school and sign in when you arrive if you’re late.
– Lily Rogers 9Z

What if… I lose my bus pass?

Tell your form teacher and if you still can’t find it anywhere, apply for a new one.

What if… I lose my locker key?

Tell your form teacher and if it’s not found, you pay a small fee for a new locker key

How do I pay for my school lunch?

There is a machine so when you need to put money on you put your fingerprint on the scanner and then you put your money in.
– Joan Moore 9V

What if… I forget my lunch money?

If you forget lunch money you can either ask for your friend to maybe buy you something or you can tell the dinner lady and you can pay for your lunch the next day.

What do I do if my finger print doesn’t work for school dinners?

You should tell the canteen staff and your form teacher

Talk to a teacher and try to talk to people in your class and other classes.
