We would pefer that valuables are not brought to school. Any valuables brought into school are the pupils’ responsibility.
Examples include expensive mobile phones and other electronic items, jewellery and even designer clothing.
Pupils who do so are responsible for safeguarding their own possessions. Teachers and the office staff will take valuables for safekeeping if necessary. During PE lessons, pupils have the option of leaving their valuables in the changing room or in the PE office. However, as neither are under continual supervision the school cannot accept responsibility for the loss or damage of valuables.
During SQA exams, pupils are advised to keep mobile phones at home or in lockers, but they may be kept in the school office if this is not possible.
The school will not be held responsible for loss or damage of valuables which pupils have not submitted to their teacher for safe keeping. Lockers are available for pupils to rent, but are offered on the basis of seniority within the school. There are a small number of S1 pupils who currently rent a locker. We recently fitted extra lockers in the school. All are available for pupils to rent on a first come, first served basis.
