In school we promote team spirit as well as individual achievement. We encourage each pupil to develop high standards of personal behaviour.

 

As parents we would ask you to help us by:

 

 

·       supporting the maintenance of good discipline in school and promoting in your child good codes of conduct with regard to behaviour, uniform and homework;

 

·       ensuring your child attends school regularly and brings the necessary equipment;

 

·       developing and maintaining channels of communication with school.

 

 

We devise an individual support plan for any pupil having consistent difficulties in managing their behaviour.
