Lockers and CYCLING

Lockers

You can hire a locker for which you will need a large sized padlock.

You will receive details regarding the hire of lockers at the start of the school year.

Cycling

If you wish to cycle/scoot to school, you must register your bike/scooter. Registration forms are available from your Year Leader or you can click the link below.

Please ensure that your bike/scooter is fully roadworthy and it is your responsibility to follow the Highway Code. In the interest of safety, cycling/scooting is banned on the school premises. All bikes/scooters should be locked in the bike shed with a quality bike lock.

MOBILE PHONES

Students should only have a mobile phone in school if their parent has completed a mobile phone permission slip and returned it to Student Reception. If a student does have permission to have a mobile phone, the following rules apply:

Mobile phones must not be seen or used during lesson time or at any time whilst in the school building. The only exception to these rules are in the ‘Mobile Phone Zones’ (Upper School Canteen, Main Canteen, Picnic Area) at break and lunch time. If a student is seen to be using a mobile phone outside these areas, there will be a sanction put in place. If the student refuses to comply, then the phone will be confiscated by a member of SLT or the ECM team.

The school accepts no liability for loss of or damage to the phone at any time whatsoever. The phone is, at all times, the responsibility of the child. Where offensive or bullying text messages or voice mails have been sent, the phone of the offender will be confiscated and returned to a parent. Offensive messages may be recorded. These would be handed to the police if the offence was subject to police investigation. If a student has a phone in school without a signed permission slip, their phone will be confiscated.

Learning Support Department

Beauchamps High School’s Learning Support Department is well-equipped and experienced in a wide variety of syndromes, learning needs and disabilities. Our staff are highly trained to offer effective support to all students. We pride ourselves in catering for the individuals’ needs through successful intervention programmes. We do not have a ‘one size fits all approach’. We have a good reputation for facilitating learning, ensuring progress and achievement for all students. We are a fully inclusive school and as such, much of the teaching and learning takes place within the mainstream curriculum.

We are a large, strong team who are deeply committed to ensuring accessibility across the curriculum for all students. We strongly believe that all students are entitled to a full and vibrant education and as a result we work closely with parents, pupils and external agencies to ensure each pupil meets their full potential, academically, socially and emotionally.

Please refer to the Key School Information page for details of the Beauchamps High School SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) Report and School Offer.
