DRESS CODE, EXPECTATIONS, REWARDS & SANCTIONS
We have extremely high expectations for behaviour and our students meet our high standards nearly all the time. Behaviour issues are rare in our Post-16 context as students have chosen to study here.
We use the ClassCharts system that is used in main school and the school Relationships Policy been adapted for the Post-16 context.
With incidents of poor behaviour in Post-16 it is usually the case that staff will attempt to discuss the rationale for a given sanction before putting one in place for a Post-16 student. In the very rare instance of more serious behaviour or infringements the whole-school policy will be used.
The Post-16 professional dress code seeks to achieve a balance between the understandable desire for greater self-expression amongst Post-16 students and the fact that our setting is blended with lower school where a uniform is worn. This requires a degree of compromise from students who are role models to students in lower school.
