EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES SURVEY
Please take the time to answer these questions to help us monitor academic achievement at the school. The Government has asked schools to collect this information. However, you don’t have to give the information unless you want to. Any information you do give will be treated in the strictest confidence.
Our ethnic background describes how we think of ourselves. This may be based on many things, including, for example, our skin colour, languages, culture, ancestry or family history. Ethnic background is not the same as nationality or country of birth. The information commissioner (formerly Data Protection Registrar) recommends that young people aged over 11 years old have the opportunity to decide their own ethnic identity. Parents or those with parental responsibility are asked to support or advise those children aged over 11 in making this decision, wherever necessary. Pupils aged 16 or over can make this decision for themselves.
Why are you asking if I am new to the UK?
This information is solely to identify whether the student may need additional language support.

This agreement seeks to establish a constructive working partnership between students, parents and staff that will ensure that all students make full use of their skills and talents. Please read it carefully before signing below.
1. ACHIEVEMENT: Each student will be helped to set and achieve his or her own individual educational goals.
2. ATTENDANCE: Students are expected to attend school regularly and to arrive punctually for all lessons. It is the legal responsibility of parents to ensure full attendance. It is the responsibility of the student to make up any work missed by absence. Holidays must not be taken during school term time.
3. CODE OF CONDUCT: Everyone is required to observe the School Code of Conduct and abide by our school values.
4. HOMEWORK: Students will be set regular homework and it is expected that parents will oversee its completion. Social commitments and paid employment should not interfere with homework.
5. PLANNER: Students are issued with a planner, which contains their timetable and other vital information. They are expected to record homework in it. Staff will use it to send messages to parents. Parents are asked to sign it weekly and to write any comments and information in it. The planner must be taken to all lessons and, if it is lost, must be replaced by the student (Cost £5).
6. SANCTIONS: The School operates a system of sanctions agreed by the Governors.
• Staff may detain a student during the day without prior notice.
• Students may also be detained after school, for which parents will be given a day’s notice.
Good discipline in a school depends upon the continuing support and co-operation of parents.
7. UNIFORM: The Piggott School has a compulsory uniform for students in Years 7 to 11 agreed by the Governors, after consultation with parents, students and staff. Full details are given in the School Prospectus and in the student planner. If a student arrives at school in incorrect uniform, with inappropriate hair or makeup without a reasonable explanatory note from parents, he/she may be required to return home to change.
8. COMMUNICATIONS: The school undertakes to communicate regularly with parents over their children’s individual progress and other matters of importance. Parents are expected to take the opportunity to discuss students’ progress with staff at Parents’ Evenings. It is hoped that parents will be able to involve themselves in school functions and with the Piggott School Association.
9. EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES: Every member of the school is entitled to equal consideration and opportunity, regardless of ability, race, gender, disability, or religion.
10. BULLYING: Every student has the right to be free from bullying. The school will take action to support this principle in accordance with the School’s procedures for dealing with bullying.
11. PROPERTY: Everyone should respect others’ property and that of the school. Any school equipment or books which are lost by pupils will be invoiced to the parents. Parents may be held liable for damage caused through negligence or vandalism. Parents are asked to ensure that valuable, illegal or dangerous items are not brought to school.
