High expectations are fundamental to our school and this goes far beyond academic/examination
performance and into all areas of school life. We will promote values of kindness, tolerance,
justice, and forgiveness through our policies and procedures.
When parents choose to send their child to our school, they will know that we have a distinctive
ethos and that we demand high standards of behaviour and attendance, with substantial parental
involvement in all aspects of school life being seen as an important part of achieving the high
standards we desire.
We aim to explore every avenue as an alternative to exclusion, both permanent and temporary, in
the unlikely event that behaviour is unacceptable.
We intend to open dialogue with all feeder primary schools to give us an early insight into any
behavioural and attendance problems that have been faced. This will enable us to plan
accordingly and have discussions with other agencies who may be involved such as the Education
and Welfare Service (EWS). For students who have emotional and behavioural difficulties, we will
work with Educational Psychologists so that every teacher is aware of advised strategies and the
child's behaviour is closely managed.
