Year Head duties include : promoting the personal development and well-being of pupils, implementing aspects of the school discipline policy, ensuring that reports are sent to parents and being available to meet parents and pupils.

If a student needs to leave school early she must bring a note to the Year Head from her Parent/Guardian, the Year Head will issue a ‘Blue Slip’ indicating that the student may leave school at the time requested -this ‘Blue Slip’ is then handed into the General Office as the student leaves.

If a student is ill during the day she must go to the Year Head who will contact the family to arrange transport home – students must not telephone home first before going to their Year Head.
