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
