We are pleased that your child has been allocated a place at Beaumont Leys School. You will find all the information that you need about moving to secondary school on this website.
Once we have received our allocations list from admissions I contact all the primary schools and arrange to meet the staff to collect information about the students who will be joining us. I then make arrangements to meet all the students who will be transferring. These visits usually take place after the May half term holiday. If your child is the only child coming from a primary school I will ensure that they have the opportunity to make an additional visit to our school before Induction Day.
This year our Induction Day is Tuesday 4th July. Students will be expected to arrive at school by 8.30am. They will need to wear a smart white shirt, black school trousers or skirt and smart black shoes. If your child has already got their Beaumont Leys uniform they are welcome to wear this. They will also need to bring a school bag and a pencil case with writing equipment. They will not need to bring any money for lunch as we will be providing this free of charge. Students will be dismissed at 3pm, please ensure your child knows how they are getting home. We hold a special evening for parents to enable them to meet with their child’s tutor, listen to a talk from the Head teacher, and take a tour of the school. This will run from 4.45pm until 6.45pm on Tuesday 4th July.
On Induction day students will:-
- Have their photograph taken for their lanyard.
- Meet their tutor.
- Meet the other students who will be in their tutor group.
- Experience 5 different subject lessons.
- Enjoy a break time with a variety of activities on offer.
- Choose a free lunch from the menu.
- Attend an assembly at the end of the day where they will watch a short presentation about their day.
- Visit with their parents/carers in the evening to meet with their tutor and complete a treasure hunt around the school.
At Beaumont Leys we pride ourselves on our uniform, this year students in Year 7 will wear a yellow tie. All uniform with school badges can be bought at John Cheatle, trousers, skirts and shirts are widely available at most supermarkets. You can find more information about our uniform here.
Good attendance is very important and we expect all students to aim for at least 95%. If your child is ill we ask that you call the school office with the reason for their absence. Holidays in term time are not authorised unless there are exceptional circumstances. Parents may face a fine if they take their child on an unauthorised holiday. More information about our Attendance Policy can be found here.
Homework plays an important part in embedding the learning that takes place in the classroom. Homework is set on a regular basis and students will need to record this in their planner which they will receive at the start of the term. More information about our homework policy can be found here.
Good behaviour is important at Beaumont Leys. We run a Gold Medal Behaviour system (GSB) to encourage students to always “Be their best selves”. More information about our Behaviour Policy and GSB can be found here.
