We want our students to be the best they can be and the best they are meant to be. Our families expect the school to promote learning, look after their children and ensure respectful behaviour in a calm, well-ordered, safe and happy community.
To achieve this, The Brian Clarke Church of England Academy promotes and explicitly teaches respectful, courteous behaviour which creates a positive, calm and orderly environment where teachers can teach without interruption, students can learn without interruption, people are listened to, restorative practice is embedded, and the whole community can flourish.
“The BC Way – Every Day”, sets out consistent expectations detailing what is expected of students and why this is important. Understanding why some things are expected is important so that we can all agree on the need for each rule.
“The BC Way – Every Day”
All members of the school community will treat everyone with respect.
If students have any concerns about the wellbeing of others they should report it immediately to a member of staff.
Students must always follow instructions and reasonable requests from members of staff.
Students must move around the school in a sensible, calm and quiet way.
