School Rules

Be Ready

In Year 6 children need to be ready for mature, independent learning. This year we aim to ensure they are ready for their move towards secondary school and that they develop the confidence they need to take this next step. Children need to be ready with their reading books daily and their homework weekly to ensure they are able to make excellent progress in all areas.

Be Respectful

Year 6 are the role models for every student in the school and therefore we have high expectations of their respectful behaviour. In Year 6 there are plenty of opportunities for leadership roles within the school and this is an excellent time for children to show off their respectful attitude and manners.

Be Safe

Year 6 are setting the bar high for the school by showing safe behaviour at all times. Within the classroom children are expected to be modelling safe behaviour and ensuring the safe use of any resources we provide.
