Procedure for closure of the school due to bad weather

In the event that the school is forced to close due to bad weather, a notice will be placed on the home page of the website by 7 a.m. that day. Information will also be placed on Twitter (@crispinsschool) and Facebook (St. Crispin’s School). We will also notify you by email.


School Day

Confiscated items
  • Hoodies will be confiscated – they should not be worn at any time on the school site.
  • Non-uniform jewellery such as bracelets (one charity band allowed), piercings (one in each lobe only) will also be confiscated.
Mobile phone regulations

Mobile Phones – if these are brought to school we take no responsibility for loss or damage. Students should be reminded that mobile phones are allowed to be used during break and lunch.

If they are seen to be used during a lesson undirected by the teacher they will be confiscated until the end of the day. There is a procedure in place for continued defiance of the school rules and use of phone in lessons.

Valuables in school

Students who study GCSE or A Level Photography are allowed to use their own cameras. Cameras should be delivered to the Photography Department at the beginning of the school day where they are stored safely under the school’s care.

All cameras should be collected from secure storage before 3.30 p.m. We regret that we cannot take liability for cameras on the way to or from school.

Cycling to school

Cycling to School – Important Notice to Parents St. Crispin’s School supports pupils who wish to walk or cycle to school since it improves their health and fitness and reduces traffic.

While the school wishes to encourage an increase in the number of pupils cycling to school, the decision as to whether your child is competent is one for individual parents. St. Crispin’s School understandably cannot cover loss or damage to cycles. We do however have a bike shed to keep bikes dry in inclement weather and it is mainly locked during the school day.

Cycle Helmets

All pupils wishing to cycle to school MUST wear an appropriate cycle helmet.

Conditions for Cycling to School

  1. All bicycles must be in a roadworthy condition including working lights
  2. Cyclists must ride sensibly and follow the Highway Code
  3. Cyclists must be considerate of other users of the school site
  4. All bicycles must be locked securely in the approved cycle parking area
  5. The cycle sheds will be opened before and after school but will be locked for the duration of the school day

St. Crispin’s School reserves the right to revoke the permission to bike to school in the event that these conditions are ignored.
