School Ethos and Values

The ethos of the school is underpinned by the principle of Discipline with Dignity. We expect all members of the school’s community to treat each other with respect and understand that being part of a large community means that behaving responsibly is more important than simply obeying the rules. We expect pupils to be punctual and attend regularly.

Notice
Start of Autumn Term 2020
Our first priority when students return is to help them feel safe in the school environment and re-establish strong routines in terms of learning and expectations. The government has provided guidelines recently that we will take on board to ensure that there is a broad, balanced and engaging curriculum for the whole school community. We will ensure that gaps in learning are addressed over the course of the academic year and that a gradual acceleration of learning will mean no pupil is disadvantaged. Our plans at the moment include a staggered start to the term to allow for a smooth integration to the school timetable as well as establish new routines in a measured approach. Please see our Letters to Parents for more information regarding the staggered start to the new term.
