Health & Safety Back to Alevel
The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is paramount at Newlands.
If you are considering joining our school, you should be aware of the following rules that apply on campus:
- Smoking, Vaping & Illegal Substances
Smoking, vaping and possession or use of nicotine products or illegal substances is strictly prohibited on school and boarding premises, including the grounds, gate areas, and car parks; the areas around the school (including the adjacent playground) or while under the authority of the school. We maintain a zero-tolerance policy on these matters: Any student found to have broken these rules will be subject to dismissal from the school.
Security guards at the A Level gate routinely inspect bags and backpacks. The school is monitored by security cameras in all areas. Students and staff are expected to comply with security measures for the safety of all.
A Level students may use mobile phones on campus. However, the school will not take responsibility for loss or damage. Students must refrain from photographing other students or members of staff without their knowledge, and must respect any refusal of consent.
A Level students who drive a car must have a proper permit to do so, which must be submitted to the A Level Administration. Newlands is located in a quiet residential area. All drivers are expected to obey the speed limit and use caution when driving near the school. Students are not allowed to drive motorbikes to school.
The school has a well-equipped Sick Bay, attended by a trained first-aider. Minor accidents and minor illnesses are handled here, and referred to a hospital or doctor if warranted.
- Safety & Evacuation Drills
Unannounced safety drills take place at least once a term. A Level students are expected to comply quickly with all safety instructions during a drill.
