Food at School
The school’s kitchens are closed until we review our measures against the pandemic. ISA makes every effort to make the building safe for students with allergens, but we cannot guarantee it and it is important that your child know how to keep themselves safe. Please take care to prepare a safe packed lunch for your child, and to protect other children when bringing food into school. Students must use their own utensils and please ensure they bring in enough to eat and drink each day.
If you child has forgotten anything, usually we can lend a replacement. We can provide food, water, pens, paper, pencils or spare Chromebooks. If there is something else you must urgently deliver please ring reception on 730300 to arrange a delivery time. When you get to the building wait outside the main student entrance and then ring 730300 again. Someone will come out to collect the item, and will make sure it gets to your child.

ISA’s approach to behaviour issues is outlined in its philosophy statement. Students have both rights and responsibilities, and are expected to follow a Code of Conduct. ISA has outlined expectations and consequences including digital citizenship but this is not an exhaustive list. We also set out specific expectations for buses, student dress, lunchtime, changing rooms and mobile phones. The school has the right of reasonable search.
Guiding Statements, Policies and Strategy
ISA’s decisions should be consistent with its Board Policies which cover the School And Its Goals, the School Board, Fiscal Management, Business Management, Personnel, Health Safety Security And The Environment, Instruction, Students, School Community Relations, Data Protection, and Child Protection.
