Prohibited items

To ensure everyone’s safety in the Academy, certain items are not permitted:

  • Chewing gum (this causes huge damage to furniture and fittings and carries a risk of choking )
  • Glass bottles
  • Permanent marker pens
  • Aerosol cans including aerosol deodorant (use of aerosols can induce asthma attacks if sprayed near sufferers. Please use roll-on if required)
  • I-pods, MP3s and stereos (the Academy is not responsible for the loss of such items and is not insured against such loss) o Large amounts of money
  • Expensive items (such as PSPs)
  • Cigarettes, matches and lighters
  • Energy drinks– large bottles/large fruit juice and carbonated drinks
  • Any item which is potentially harmful to any member of the Academy community

We appreciate that some parents wish their children to have mobile phones as a means of communication in an emergency. However, it is clear from local and national crime figures that the violent theft of mobile phones is a growing and serious threat to children’s safety. If your child brings a phone to the Academy, it must be kept out of sight and switched off at all times.

Mobile phones used in the Academy or going off in lessons will be confiscated. All items confiscated must be collected by a parent/carer; they will not be returned to the student. Persistent offenders will have items confiscated for longer periods.

The Academy will take no responsibility for any of these items and, if they are lost or stolen, valuable teaching and learning time will not be sacrificed to recover them.
