The ‘respect agenda’, enshrined in our Four Expectations, is a central theme in all aspects of school life; we insist that all students show respect for themselves, their peers, their teachers and our community.
We recognise how fortunate we are in terms of students’ attitudes and behaviour and the positive choices the vast majority of our students make on a daily basis. This is evident in our whole school attitude to learning grades, lesson observations and through the regularly positive feedback we receive from visitors to the school. This is something we passionately want to protect. We wholeheartedly believe in our motto of ‘Achievement for All’ and the respect agenda underpins our school ethos.
- Speak and behave respectfully to staff and students
- Respect for your learning and the learning of others
- Respect the school environment
- Respect the wider community
Students failing to meet our expectations will be issued with the ‘respect agenda’ assignment. This will either be for a support call (where a member staff has to call for support from a senior colleague due to a child’s behaviour), or for a failure to meet the Four Expectations during social time (including behaviour in the community). Students will be expected to complete the 400 word assignment thoughtfully and to the best of their ability, answering all of the questions listed on the prompts provided. We hope that the parents of those involved will support the school and talk through the assignment, assisting in its completion. We recognise that all children will make mistakes from time to time this is designed to continue to educate our students and help them to recognise what positive choices and behaviours look like. We also want students to understand the negative impact poor choices can have on themselves and others.
