We base our Code of Conduct on these two Commandments:
LOVE ONE ANOTHER
As members of our school community, we should always:
- Respect each other and treat others in the way we would like to be treated.
- Behave in a way which is not aggressive and sort out any problems without conflict. (This means not stirring up trouble by spreading gossip or rumours, not bullying, not fighting or encouraging others to fight.)
- Be polite and use language which will not offend or hurt other people's feelings.
- Be helpful when someone is in difficulty.
- Arrive at lessons on time and with all the correct equipment.
- Dress smartly in correct school uniform.
- Make it as easy as possible, in class, for every pupil to learn and for the teacher to teach. (This means entering the room quietly and settling quickly, listening carefully and obeying instructions, being helpful, raising your hand and waiting for permission to speak. It also means using equipment sensibly and returning it to its proper place and leaving the room in an orderly way.)
- Move quietly and sensibly around school. This means keeping to the left, never running or pushing but being ready to help by opening doors, standing back to let people pass and helping to carry things. It also means that you should queue sensibly outside classrooms if you are required to wait.)
- Help to keep the school clean and tidy, caring for our environment. (This means placing litter in bins, keeping walls and furniture clean and unmarked and not bringing chewing gum to school.)
- Look after school property and other people's property as if it were our own.
- Behave in a sensible way when travelling to and from school and when representing the school or taking part in school trips. (This means behaving well on school buses, following the instructions of our bus prefects, being good representatives of the school.)
