General Rules

1. Treat others with respect and dignity remembering that those who have less than you are valued just as much as those who have more.

2. Make sure that your words and actions are always positive and that your own behaviour never prevents others from learning.

3. Wear your uniform fully and with pride. You belong to a good school and you show your belonging by how you dress and how you behave.

4. Arrive at school, on time, ready to learn with all the books and equipment you need for your learning.

5. Travel to and from school safely and responsibly using the Pedestrian and Zebra Crossings on Station Road.
