Confiscated Items

Items will be confiscated from students at school if they are a threat to others; a threat to learning; against the uniform rules; a threat to health and safety; illegal; undermining the ethos of the school eg production of material in paper form or via the internet which might cause tension between one community and another or one student and another.

In most cases confiscated items will be returned at the end of the school day.  Any items kept for more than a school day will be given to Student Reception who will keep a record of the items confiscated.  A note will be made in the planner to inform parents.  If the student brings in or uses the banned item then further sanctions will be applied.
