Conduct & Behaviour
All students on admission to the school sign the Stakeholders Contract agreeing to the school's Code of Conduct. Click on this link to see the full Behaviour for Learning Policy for further details.
In order for students to demonstrate appropriate behaviour, they need to understand our expectations. These centralise around three core values that we expect from all of our students.
- Come with a 'can do' attitude to achieving your very best.
- Arrive to lessons on time, in the correct uniform, with the correct equipment, including homework.
- Enter the classroom and get books and equipment out, awaiting staff instructions.
- Carry out an instruction at the first time of asking.
Students to demonstrate care and respect for:
- Your own learning, showing pride in your presentation.
- Other people and the learning of others.
- Staff instruction at the first time of asking.
- The school’s reputation within the school environment and in the community.
- Take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour - demonstrating good manners.
- Be responsible for creating a supportive learning environment.
- Use your time productively to maximise your learning.
If students are demonstrating inappropriate behaviour, they will be encouraged to make the right choice and correct their behaviour. Staff will employ a variety of behaviour management strategies to enable them to do this. Great emphasis is placed on the difference between right and wrong and making the right choice. Although we understand children often learn through making mistakes, should they still choose the wrong pathway then sanctions will be issued, providing further opportunity for reflection and intervention.
