  • Complete all tasks you are capable of in lessons
  • Politely request help when you need it
  • Talk respectfully to staff if work is too hard or if you feel you are capable of working at a higher level

Respect Myself and Other People

  • We focus on positive respectful language and tone of voice at all times (even when annoyed/ upset)
  • Respect personal space (line up politely to wait, be safe especially in doorways)
  • We have zero tolerance on bullying/ sexism/ racism
  • We use proper communication (not threat or aggression) to explain ourselves

Respect Our School

  • Full, correct uniform at all times
  • We do all we can to make our school a better place to learn (damage/making damage worse/ vandalism/ graffiti/ kicking/ hitting/ breaking/ littering are never acceptable)
  • We hand each other items and put things in their place/ in the bin - throwing is dangerous
  • We protect the calm and good order of our school – this makes it a safe and peaceful place to learn
  • We never smuggle or carry items into school when not for learning purposes (e.g. pens/ markers/ sharp, pointed/ dangerous objects/ objects belonging to others) – our coats stay in the cloakroom, our possessions go to the office
  • We represent our school with pride when offsite (e.g. in the minibus, sports fixtures, trips, attending other places of learning)

Actions Bring Consequences

  • Positive actions bring positive consequences
  • I will accept a consequence if I make a mistake/ break the standpoints…
