Lunch Cards & Locker Keys

Students are issued with a lunch card (if they decide not to be registered on our biometric system) and locker key when they start at PCS. These items are the student's responsibility to keep safe.

We do not charge deposits (unlike most schools that have lockers) but if your key or lunchcard is lost or damaged, defaced including graffiti etc, you will be expected to pay replacement costs.

Please note that lockers are school property and that a condition of having a locker is that the student and parent/carer consents to have the locker searched for any unauthorised item whether or not the student is present.

Replacement costs are as follows:
• Lunch cards: £5
• Locker keys: £5

All items are available from reception.

We rely on parents to support us in ensuring students wear correct uniform and have the correct equipment. This allows us to focus on learning.
