Raising Expectations

Our continual drive on raising standards ensures that students, staff and parents are clear as to the expectations we have of each other and how these support progress for all.

  • Students are expected to show full respect for all members of the school at all times in the way they speak and in the way they act.
  • Students are expected to follow instructions form the teachers and other adults helpfully and without argument.
  • Students are expected to show respect and consideration to all people they meet outside school and on the journey to and from school.
  • Students are expected to engage in their learning at all times.
  • Students are expected to arrive at school in line with the school uniform policy.
  • Students are expected to have their mobile devices ‘off and away’ at all times.
  • Students are expected to be properly equipped for every lesson.
  • Students are expected to eat their food in the designated eating area only. (Chewing gum is not allowed in school.)

Our commitment to you - Aims and Values

We aim to provide an environment in which all students can succeed. 
In order to do this we will seek to:

  • ensure that every member of the school community knows that the school is genuine in its care and support of them.
  • encourage independence of thought and respect each person’s uniqueness and needs in the development of his/her talents and intellect.
  • encourage each member of the school to show respect for each other, the wider community and understand and develop his/her role as an active responsible citizen.
  • ensure that students have a wide range of extending and enriching experiences and opportunities.
  • ensure positive working conditions in which clearly stated standards of behaviour and courtesy are upheld.
  • provide a clean, bright, safe and stimulating environment where learning can prosper and where individual talent can be developed to the full.
  • be fair and just.
  • uphold an ethos where students are valued.
  • recognise and celebrate achievement.
  • provide work which meets the individual needs of the student and mark work conscientiously.
  • communicate clear expectation of the school.
  • give clear reasons for setting and grouping arrangements.
  • inform you of your child’s progress.
