Our students learn because they want to learn and we expect them to work hard. The most important thing to us is learning – any student whose behaviour gets in the way of learning will face sanctions.

In a large Academy, it is necessary for all students, parents and staff to share an understanding that all students will:

  • work hard to achieve their full academic potential
  • respect learning, their own and others
  • respond to the many opportunities present both in and beyond the classroom
  • respect fellow students and staff
  • respect Academy property
  • attend regularly, except when ill
  • complete homework and coursework to set deadlines
  • comply with instructions from all staff
  • when at fault, accept correction without argument
  • wear uniform as intended
  • seek to achieve their personal best
  • We take our responsibilities seriously and we expect parents to take their responsibilities seriously too.

Parents must:

  • support our code of behaviour
  • ensure sure that their children attend
  • send their children to school dressed in correct Academy uniform and properly equipped for learning
  • ensure that their children complete their homework
  • check and sign their children’s planner (supplied by the Academy) regularly, as this is an important way for us to communicate
