Canon Palmer Catholic School is a special agreement co-educational school founded in 1961. It took the name of a much loved and respected priest who laid the foundations of the Catholic community in and around Ilford. Now thirty eight years later it is a well-established Comprehensive School. Canon Palmer School is first and foremost a Catholic School. It belongs to the local Catholic community which we strive to serve and we expect and receive its support. The school seeks to educate and develop pupils of all abilities who can feel at home in a mainstream school. The pupils who arrive at eleven are very different from the young men and women who leave us at sixteen and eighteen. Your child will also grow up and develop in many ways at Canon Palmer - physically, emotionally and socially, academically and spiritually. He or she will grow up to take his or her own place in a complex world and the school will make it its business to help them in every way it can. The way the pupils will be treated will also reflect the changes in them and their different stages of development.


1) All pupils should treat other pupils, members of staff, and all with whom they come into contact, with Christian courtesy.

2) On their way to and from school, and on school outings, pupils are expected to behave as if they are in school.

3) All pupils must wear full school uniform on all occasions. Trainers are not to be worn at any times when the pupil should be in school uniform, except at lunch time.

4) Homework is compulsory. Both parents and staff should use the log book as communication. The log book must be carried at all times.

5) Formal sanctions will be used in school when positive encouragement has not had the desired effect.

6) Prefects carry the Headteacher's authority and are to be obeyed in any situation where they rightly represent the school.

7) Pupils may not leave school premises during the day without a full lunch pass or a day pass or for a medical based appointment.

8) A written parental note is required to account for absence or lateness. This should arrive when the pupil returns to school, or prior to this, if the absence is over 3 days. Pupils requiring medication in school must have a letter from their parents confirming details.

9) The school cannot accept responsibility for the loss of pupils' property, unless, as in exceptional cases, the item(s) is handed in officially to the office or Deputy Head. The only jewellery worn should be inexpensive, unobtrusive crosses or medals. Girls may wear only one pair of plain studs. Boys are not permitted to wear any form of jewellery worn in the ear. Rings worn on the finger are not permitted by any pupil.

10) Pupils are not allowed to have anything in school which is unsuitable to a school situation, or which is dangerous. The Headteacher's decision on this is final. Such items will be confiscated, and kept by the school until the end of the term in which they were confiscated. They may then be claimed. In the case of dangerous items, parents will be informed. Pupils with bicycles must satisfy a basic proficiency test and have written parental consent.
