Biometrics

The school wishes to use biometric information about your child as part of an automated (i.e. electronically-operated) recognition system. This is for the purposes of financial administration of canteen purchases and registration and recording movements of students onto and off site. The information from your child that we wish to use is referred to as ‘biometric information’.

Uniform

We believe that many people judge a school by the appearance of its students. For this and many other reasons, extremes of fashion are discouraged and we ask for parental co-operation in ensuring the smart appearance of students.
