Ethos of the School

The school believes that good behaviour forms the basis of high quality education and is essential for effective learning.  High quality learning can only take place in an orderly community.

Uniform enhances a sense of community and students are expected to wear their uniform in the correct manner and to take a pride in their appearance.

All students should feel comfortable and secure in the school environment and should know where to seek help if they have any concerns, either for themselves or for other members of the school community.

It is the role of all members of staff and parents to model and reinforce good behaviour.  All students should be encouraged to recognise and understand the link between good behaviour and effective learning.
