The Good Conduct Guide
These are the basic standards for all students at all times in St Anne’s Academy.
Our Code of Conduct is based on respect, and the fact that all of us have rights and responsibilities –
all students have the right to learn and are responsible for their own actions and all teachers have the right to teach without disruption.
Follow the Golden Rule: treat other people the way you would want to be treated yourself
- talk to others politely, without shouting, swearing or using inappropriate language
- show care and consideration for all others at all times
- be kind and help those in need- you never know when you may need help yourself!
