During the extreme high temperatures, students will be permitted to take a bottle of plain still water in a clear colourless bottle up to 500ml into teaching venues but these must not be consumed in areas / lessons with particular health and safety restrictions, e.g. IT suites or in corridors, and the teachers say is final.

Parents are advised that students may wish to wear sunscreen during outdoor sessions. Students should attend in full uniform as usual. A decision on hot weather uniform protocol will be made on a daily basis.
