Code of Behaviour

Our code of behaviour is based on a ‘Rights and Responsibilities’ model and are discussed, developed and agreed by all members of the school community. This is clearly displayed in the classrooms and around the school in written and visual formats.  References are routinely made to the displayed code and it’s underlying purpose, as part of lessons and all other aspects of school life, to reinforce expectations.
