Messages for boarding staff should go to firstname.lastname@example.org . Each boarder MUST be ‘signed-out’ by the adult designated to collect him or her with the teacher-on-duty. Standard leave-out arrangements, as above, are listed by prefects on Thursday evening and checked by staff. Requests for any variation from this must be made to the school office not later than 4.00 p.m. on that Thursday. Parents of boarders should remember that written permission is required in the case of pupils who are going to spend a weekend with a friend and the school accepts no responsibility once a pupil has left the school premises for a weekend. The parent or adult friend taking the pupil out must ‘sign-out’ that pupil and take full responsibility for the pupil as set out here.
