You have the right to see a number of documents such as Government Circulars, Local Education Policies, the policies and curricular aims of the School Governors, HMI reports on the school, schemes of work and subject syllabuses, the annual report to parents and so on.

You may contact the Headteacher during school hours to arrange a convenient time to see these documents.
If you require copies they will be made available to you for 10 pence a page.

Although the particulars in this website are correct at the time of publication, changes to some details may occur during the academic year. We will make every effort to ensure that parents have the current and correct details.

The school keeps a record of curricular information about each pupil. Parents have the right to see most of this information about their own child. Parents who wish to exercise this right should make prior arrangements with the Headteacher during school hours.

Schools are required to refer all concerns regarding the safety of children to the Social Services Department. Parents need not be informed.

Physical Disabilities
Ysgol Uwchradd Bodedern provides for disabled pupils. Adaptations to the building include the provision of a lift, care suite, ramps and specialist work areas in Technology and Science rooms to enable pupils in wheelchairs to have full access to the school’s facilities. Close liaison with external agencies has also been developed and Learning Support Assistants for pupils who require support are also provided at the school. Ysgol Uwchradd Bodedern has adopted an active policy of full access to the mainstream curriculum for all pupils in our care, including the integration of physically and sensory impaired pupils.

Learning Difficulties
In accordance with the Code of Practice for Additional Educational Needs, pupils with learning difficulties in the core subject areas of literacy and numeracy will receive additional learning support according to their needs. Such pupils will be identified during the process of primary/secondary transfer and/or during the first few weeks of their time at Ysgol Uwchradd Bodedern. Every pupil needing learning support will be provided with an Individual Education Programme (IEP) which is tailored to the child's particular needs - it may include differentiated teaching techniques, reading support, withdrawal for one-to-one tuition, or extra support in the classroom. Parents will be invited to review their child's progress, and to participate in this process on a regular basis during parents' evenings and/or meetings with the Special Needs teacher and Co-ordinator. There are special arrangements for Dyslexic pupils within the learning support structure, including tutoring by specialists from the Bangor Dyslexia Unit.

During Years 10 and 11 Entry Level Certificate and ASDAN Awards courses are available to pupils with Special Educational Needs who are unlikely to benefit from studying a full complement of GCSE courses.

Provision for More Able and Talented pupils [MAT]
The school's Special Educational Needs policy embraces those pupils who are identified as being exceptionally able and talented.. The identification of such pupils will usually take place during the primary/secondary transfer and any necessary special curricular arrangements will be individually tailored to ensure the fulfilment of that pupil's potential.

Individual Education Programmes will be provided for exceptional¬ly able pupils within a broadbased and balanced curriculum, including extension tasks in all relevant subject areas.

Further details about the school’s SEN policy and provision is available from the school’s SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator): Dr Einir Thomas.

Disability Plan and Policy:
The school has adopted a Policy and a full three year plan. Please refer to section on POLICIES

MESSAGE TO PARENTS
Pupils will receive regular homework whilst at Ysgol Uwchradd Bodedern. It is an important aspect of pupils’ personal development as it teaches pupils how to study independently outside school hours. We therefore kindly ask parents to give their full support by:
• emphasising the importance of homework
• encouraging your child to complete homework within a reasonable time of arriving home from school
• ensuring there is a suitable work area available to them, with a table or desk with good lighting in a quiet area, away from distractions such as the television, music, talking etc.
• encouraging your child to read regularly - there are pages to record reading sessions in this book
• ensure that your child corrects errors and learns subject vocabulary/corrections regularly
• signing the communication book regularly after checking that your child has completed homework to the best possible standard

A homework timetable is prepared for each year group to ensure that tasks can be completed over a reasonable period of time although teachers may set homework before the timetabled day. In addition to this, pupils may receive shorter tasks that need to be completed by the following day. If an emergency (e.g. a family crisis) arises which prevents your child from completing homework punctually parents are kindly requested to note this in the communication book.

MESSAGE TO PUPILS
Remember:
• to record the task briefly in the communication book, writing any detailed tasks in your book or file
• to complete the ‘Date due’ column
• to take time to complete tasks to your best standard
• to use the Language Booklet to check your work before handing it in to be marked and to do your corrections
• to manage your time so that you do not have too much work to complete in one evening
• to present the work punctually to your teachers
• if you have difficulty completing a task because of a family crisis for example, make sure that you explain this to your teacher in good time
• to show your completed homework to your parents and ask them to sign your communication book regularly
• that you can use the school’s facilities to complete homework during break and lunchtime

ATTENDANCE AT SCHOOL IS VITAL FOR SUCCESS
The better the attendance, the better the results.
Make medical and dental appointments outside school time if possible. Appointment cards should be shown to the class tutor.
Parents are expected to contact the school on the first day of their child’s absence to explain the reason for their absence.
Where no contact has been made, a truancy call will be sent.
These are the steps followed when dealing with unsatisfactory absenteeism :

STEP 1
Class Tutor discusses the matter with the pupil.
Information letter sent.

STEP 2
Parents receive a form to note exact illness / note exact reason for absenteeism

STEP 3
If insufficient reasons are given, parents will be contacted to discuss the matter.

STEP 4
If attendance has not improved, the matter will be transferred to the School Welfare Officer. He /She will contact the home.

STEP 5
If the situation does not improve, the Education Welfare Officer will be visiting the home.

STEP 6
Ultimately, if your child’s attendance does not improve, the Head will be referring the matter to the courts.

Dyma’r sgiliau hanfodol rwyt ti eu hangen ar gyfer bod
yn ddinesydd da yng Nghymru a’r byd:

LLYTHRENNEDD/ CYFATHREBU [C]

GWELLA DY DDYSGU A’TH BERFFORMIAD DY HUN [GP]

Cofia nodi pa sgiliau rwyt ti’n eu datblygu drwy’r flwyddyn.

Pa agweddau wyt ti yn eu datblygu? Sut?

to behave in a polite and considerate way towards members of staff, peers and pupils
to be present during registration periods, arriving promptly
to attend morning assembly
to attend lessons punctually and regularly
not to be absent from school for spurious reasons such as
  ° to take holidays out of term-time
  ° to engage in part or full-time work that is not part of the programme of study
  ° to engage in leisure activities
  ° to take days off for birthdays or family celebrations
  ° to baby-sit siblings or other child, or to attend to elderly relations
  ° to arrange driving lessons
to make a conscientious effort throughout the course, handing work in on time
to make appropriate use of non-contact lessons by studying in the designated work areas for a minimum of 3 lessons a week
to adhere to the Study Centre’s rules
to be responsible for collecting evidence for the Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification portfolio
to discuss any change of course / difficulties with the subject teacher and tutor in the first instance and then with the Senior Tutor before the Deputy Headteacher authorises any change.
to conform with all school rules pertaining to the Senior School
to respect school classrooms and resources
to stay on school grounds during lesson time, unless given specific permission by the Headteacher, Deputies or Head of Senior School to leave
not to undertake employment during school hours in term time
to attend consortium lessons on all occasions and to ensure that travel arrangements are dependable and known to school and parents.

1. Members of the Senior School are expected to behave in a mature way so that adults will not be forced to treat them like children, and will be able to advise them rather than tell them off.

2. Students are expected to make a serious effort to complete all assignments by the date set. Failure to conform will lead to the following responses:
(i) warning by teacher
(ii) warning by Curriculum Leader / Tutor
(iii) warning by Senior Sixth Form Tutor (non-contact lessons to be spent solely working in the Study Centre)
(iii) final warning – Deputy / Headteacher
(iv) leaving school

3. (a) Please inform the school of your absence on the first day of your illness by phone between 8 and 8.30 am - 01407 741000. We will be checking regular absences and discussing them with students. This would not be acceptable in a work place and is not acceptable at school.
The regulations are similar to those for members of staff. The student must inform the School Attendance Officer before 8.35 on the first day of any absence, giving details of the nature of the illness and, if possible, the anticipated date of return to work. If there student is unable to phone personally then it is the student’s responsibility to arrange for a relative to contact the school. Failure to adhere to this procedure will lead to the absence bring classified as unauthorised, similarly any subsequent days when the school is not informed of the absence.
