Yellow Book Summer Term 2014


OUR VISION ‘what a misfortune the Town is in generall under for want of a Grammar Schoole‛ (Portsmouth Quarter Sessions, 23 October 1717) In 1732 the dying wish of Dr William Smith, Mayor of Portsmouth and Physician to its Garrison, was that the Dean and Canons of Christ Church, Oxford would use his gift of land to establish a grammar school in Portsmouth. Smith’s own education had taken him from Newport on the Isle of Wight to Leiden University, one of Europe’s leading centres for medical training. Smith returned to a successful career in Portsmouth having experienced for himself the transformative power of learning. In his legacy he wished to make it possible for the city’s children to experience the same excellence in education and to develop a hunger for broader horizons. As the oldest school in the city and, uniquely, a non-denominational Cathedral School, we continue to honour the legacy of our Founder, whilst adapting our values for the twenty first century. Our vision is for The Portsmouth Grammar School to have an outstanding reputation as a school in which young people are inspired to learn and develop the confidence to believe in their ability to make a positive difference to the world. We wish our pupils and our staff to be happy and successful, and in that order. The Main Archway is symbolic of our inclusivity as a school community and of our desire to expand horizons: ‘All experience is an arch wherethrough Gleams that untravelled world’ Tennyson In the spirit of our founder, Dr William Smith, we seek to provide excellence in all areas of school life and encourage our girls and boys to think not only about where they will be at 18 but where they aspire to be at 25. Portsmouth is, after all, a city concerned with destinations.

Our mission applies both to our pupils and our staff and is to:  Ignite curiosity, imagination and passion for learning  Value each individual and to celebrate what they contribute to the school and the wider community  Nurture each individual’s intellectual, spiritual, artistic, sporting and social faculties  Develop each individual’s confidence to lead and serve in a changing world  Provide foundations for the future, from the Nursery to the Sixth Form, for university and for life -1-


PUPIL WELFARE AND GENERAL CONCERNS Staff are always keen to share pupils’ interests, and to promote their learning and welfare. All pupils are welcome to approach any member of staff about any topic at any time of mutual convenience. The Headmaster has his Private Time, from 0820 to 0840 each morning, when pupils may see him without appointment and he is happy to hear from parents about any topic of mutual interest. When parents have concerns they should always contact their child’s Tutor in the first instance. The Tutor will, if appropriate, involve other members of staff such as the Head of House, the Head of Year, a Senior Teacher or the Second Master, and finally the Headmaster. Should these referrals not deal fully with the concern, parents may contact the Chairman of Governors via the Clerk to the Governors, Mr Don Kent, who is also the Bursar. A pastoral team, consisting of the chaplain and of qualified counsellors and physicians, may also be approached in cases of personal difficulty. The Reverend Andrew Burtt, the School Chaplain may be contacted in school at any time. The School Doctor, Dr Marcus Saunders, may be contacted via the Medical Centre who may be found during school hours in the Medical Centre (tel 023 9236 4243). The school provides a counselling service from qualified counsellors and they can be contacted on school.counsellor@pgs.org.uk. The school also trains a select number of pupils as Peer Mentors who can be contacted via the email address peer.mentors@pgs.org.uk Parents and friends of the school are welcome to attend any of the co-curricular activities for the term contained in this calendar. Sporting fixtures are shown in italics, and in inclement weather spectators should check first with the Hilsea answer phone service: 023 9236 4267. Enquiries about other activities should be directed to the school: 023 9236 0036.

Chaplain’s Prayer ALMIGHTY God, the Giver of Wisdom, without Whose help resolutions are vain, without Whose blessing study is ineffectual, enable us, if it be Thy will, to attain such knowledge as may qualify us to direct the doubtful, and instruct the ignorant, to prevent wrongs, and terminate contentions; and grant that we may use that knowledge which we shall attain, to the good of our fellows. Amen Samuel Johnson

THE SCHOOL RULES At all times pupils are expected to display good manners, common sense, honesty and consideration for others. Compliance with school rules and any amendments made from time to time is a condition of pupils’ continued membership of the school. Pupils are expected to adhere to school rules whilst under school discipline, i.e. throughout the day, on their way to and from school, at all times whilst wearing school uniform and during any school-based activity. The school seeks to educate in the broadest sense, giving moral as well as academic and co-curricular foundations. Pupils should be aware that actions committed out of school discipline have the capacity to harm the reputation of the school, and are therefore to be regarded as an offence against school discipline. The School Community 1. Pupils travelling between home and school should behave sensibly and with courtesy to each other, fellow passengers and to bus drivers, rail staff and other transport staff. Pupils should show awareness for other pedestrians and extend the courtesy of giving way when walking in groups. 2. Bullying is not acceptable. Pupils are expected to adhere to the school’s AntiBullying policy. 3. Pupils are expected to behave with dignity: there should be no behaviour likely to cause embarrassment or offence, such as public displays of affection or bad language. 4. Pupils may not possess or use any of the following whilst under school discipline. Substances which the school may consider inappropriate include: fireworks, matches, lighters, laser pens, illegal substances, any offensive weapon or object capable of bringing the school into disrepute. 5. Pupils are not permitted to bring alcohol onto the school premises, nor are they permitted to frequent public houses, off-licences or to drink or purchase alcohol whilst off the premises and in school uniform. 6. The school is a non-smoking establishment. Pupils are not permitted to bring cigarettes, electronic cigarettes or tobacco in any other form, onto the school premises. Any pupil discovered smoking whilst in school uniform, whether on or off the premises, will put at risk their right to remain a pupil at the school. The no smoking rule applies equally to all trips and outings, either at home or abroad, and in or out of school uniform.

7. Pupils are expected to conform to the school’s dress code and wear full uniform smartly at all times, unless exemption has been granted by a member of staff in connection with a particular activity. Pupils should consult the Uniform requirements on the school website for details including rules relating to make-up and jewellery. 8. All pupils must attend school on all school days unless prevented by illness or other unavoidable causes. Should any pupil need to be absent for any reason, their parents should write in advance to the Headmaster requesting permission. Parents should notify the Tutor in advance of absences resulting from medical or dental appointments. It is expected that pupils will sign out at the School Office, notify their teachers of any planned absence and to catch up on any work that they miss. Absence for which permission has not been sought in advance must be explained by a parental letter within 48 hours of the pupil’s return to school. Attendance at Registration, Assemblies, Tutorial Periods, all timetabled lessons and other timetabled commitments is mandatory. 9. Pupils are expected to be punctual. Pupils should not be on the school site until 07:50. In the Senior School, pupils are permitted to wait in the main school quad until 08:30. The school buildings are open to pupils from 08:30. At the end of the school day pupils are expected to be off site by 16:10 unless they are involved in a school activity or have signed into the Homework Club. Homework Club is supervised in the main school library from 16:00-18:00. Pupils are expected to leave promptly following their after school activity. 10. Any pupil arriving on the premises after 08:35 or 13:40 will be considered late and repeated lateness will be reported to the Head of House. Late pupils must sign in with the Prefects at the Main Arch or, if the Prefects are no longer present, at the School Office before going in to lessons. 11. Sixth Form pupils may leave the school premises no earlier than the lunch break and may go home after 12:50 provided they have registered in the Exeat Book and have no afternoon lessons or other commitments. No Sixth Form pupil may visit any private house in the lunch break, with the exception of their own, and then only with written parental permission notified to the Headmaster. 12. Below the Sixth Form, pupils must remain on the school premises at all times during the school day unless a specific exception has been requested by parents. Pupils who feel ill must report to the Medical Centre who will contact parents. 13. Pupils selected to represent the school at Games, or in any other capacity such as musical or dramatic, are expected to honour their commitments. When a pupil wishes to be excused from such a commitment, permission in advance should be obtained from the member of staff in charge by a parent. In cases where there is a 52- 51


clash between school commitments, pupils must inform both members of staff involved at the earliest opportunity so that a solution can be found. 14. Pupils are required to seek the Headmaster’s permission before accepting any paid employment in the evening or weekend. This is because of the detrimental effect that such employment may have on pupils’ work or ability to complete homework etc. Permission for jobs on weekday evenings will only be given as an exception. Employment taken between Friday evening and Sunday evening should not involve more than eight hours work. 15. Infringement of the school’s e-safety Policy or Acceptable Use Policy will constitute a serious breach of school discipline. The school reserves the right in such cases to refuse use of school IT equipment both in and outside formal lesson time. In some instances breaches of this policy may also result in a range of other sanctions, including permanent exclusion. 16. The Headmaster may exclude any pupil from school or may require the permanent removal of any pupil for a serious breach of School Rules, or for exercising harmful influence in any way, or for consistently or repeatedly failing to respond with adequate effort and application to the teaching provided at the school, including where this failure is to the detriment of other members of the school, or for the accumulation of several Headmaster’s Detentions, or for any other good or necessary reason. The School Environment 17. Pupils share responsibility for the care, tidiness and good decorative order of all school buildings. No litter may be dropped on the floor. Pupils should treat all property and furniture with care and respect. 18. Pupils should not be on the school site until 07:50. In the Senior School, pupils are permitted to wait in the main school quad until 08:30. The Middle School Common Room is open at 08:00 and House spaces are open to pupils from 08:15. Classrooms and school buildings are available to pupils from 08:30. Pupils are expected to wait quietly outside classrooms before lessons begin, unless otherwise instructed.

Cycles must not be ridden within the school grounds and must be securely padlocked in the bicycle sheds 28. Pupils wishing to drive to school must complete the appropriate registration form which must be signed both by parents and by the Headmaster.

Property 31. Pupils are responsible for their own property and for items issued by the school: the school can accept no liability for accidental damage, theft or accidental loss. All pupils are expected to respect the property of others. No valuable items other than essential sports gear or musical instruments may be brought into school. Valuable items must be locked up and all items must be named 32. Mobile telephones must be switched off and not used in any way during lessons or any other school based activities. Pupils in Years 7 & 8 are expected to hand in their phones by 08:40. Pupils are allowed to use mobile telephones during break and at lunch time but not inside any school building 33.

Bags must not be carried around the school. They should be stored in the pupils’ locker. Pupils may carry a laptop computer in a slim line protective bag containing only the laptop

Academic Honesty 35. Pupils are only expected to submit their own work for marking and assessment unless they are otherwise directed by their teacher. Collusion (either by allowing work or ideas to be copied or by copying someone else’s ideas or work) and plagiarism (the submission of written or spoken work which fails to credit someone else’s work) may result in a sanction. Collusion or plagiarism in work potentially submissible to an examination board is a very serious matter, and hence our interest in developing a culture of academic honesty in pupils’ work throughout the school.

Pupil Charter: Safe Social Networking PGS believes that social networking should be fun, safe and used responsibly. The following guidelines were produced by pupils for pupils. Protecting yourself and your online reputation 1. Your online profile and reputation is your responsibility and may be used by future employers, schools and universities. The comments that are made by you or about you can impact on you. 2. Keep private information private – once something is on the internet it may be there forever. 3. Do not give out personal information (e.g. mobile number, location) online. 4. Think before you post comments or tweets. 5. Keep an eye on your ‘friends’ list and don’t be afraid to edit it - do you really count 400 people as true friends? Consider carefully the people you follow or add as friends. 6. Avoid chatting with strangers online and never arrange to meet up with them in person. 7. Use privacy settings so that only your friends can see your profile and pictures. 8. If you experience cyber-bullying or if someone you do not know is trying to contact you, do not reply. Block the person, report to the site and speak to your tutor or one of the peer counsellors. 9. Be confident in requesting that comments or images which cause you anxiety or concern are edited or removed. 10. Don’t become a social networking addict. Try to balance real life with time spent online. Protecting others – be aware of your actions 11. Respect people and their opinions. It’s OK to be different. 12. Treat others as you would like to be treated. Don’t say or upload comments or images which could be seen as offensive, don’t pass on unkind messages or join any abusive groups: this is cyber-bullying. If in doubt: Block-Report-Talk

LOST PROPERTY Any item handed to the Marshal’s staff is kept at the Marshal’s Office until the end of the day when the item is moved to the Lost Property Office situated behind Cambridge House. At the end of the school day the Caretaker collects any items left in the playground area and takes them to Lost Property. Lost property is recorded, sorted and stored alphabetically if named. Unnamed items are kept separately. A green lost property slip is sent to the relevant Tutor to notify the owner of all named items. In addition, an email is sent directly to the pupil. A weekly report is also sent out to all staff identifying the uncollected items. Mr Patrick Brooke opens the Lost Property Office daily for morning break at (10:30-10:45) and at lunchtime (13:00-13:45). Outside these times requests for lost property are dealt with by reporting to the Marshal’s Office where one of his staff opens the Lost Property Office to retrieve items. Every six weeks, property which is not collected is highlighted and owners, where known, are sent a pink slip and an email to remind them to collect their item(s). Each half term, if items are not retrieved they are recycled for use by other pupils or donated to charity. Expensive items such as blazers or valuable items are kept for one year. It is expected that all items are clearly labelled to assist in their return. School Uniform Shop The school uniform shop is located within E Block.
