Conduct and 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. 

Core Values.

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.

READY means……..

  • Arrive to lessons on time, in the correct uniform and with the correct equipment, including homework.
  • Enter the classroom and get books and equipment out, awaiting the teacher’s instructions.
  • Come with a ‘can do’ attitude to achieving your very best.

RESPECT means…….

Students to demonstrate care and respect for:

  • Their own learning - showing real pride in their presentation.
  • Other people and the learning of others.
  • The school environment.
  • The school's reputation within the local community.

Responsibility means.......

  • Take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour - demonstrating good manners.
  • Be responsible for creating a supportive learning environment.
  • To follow all reasonable instructions given by staff.


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.
