It is one of the core aims of Newmarket Academy that:
Newmarket Academy is a community built on mutual respect with positive working relationships where everyone learns, supports each other and every success is celebrated.
The purpose of the Academy is to promote learning, enable achievement and to enhance student success. For this to be achieved then the following must be in place:
Students must be safe in school. They must be free from the threat of bullying or violence
Lessons must be calm, ordered and free from disruption
There must be positive working relationships between the Academy and parents
Students should be encouraged and motivated to:
Assume personal responsibility for their actions and to make the right, rather than the wrong choices
To develop respect for other members of the community and to develop their own sense of self respect
The Academy recognises that:
It is more effective to promote, support, praise and encourage positive behaviour
Students can in some circumstances be offered an appropriate curriculum with personalised routes to success
Teaching and Learning must be inclusive, active and engaging
Sanctions must be used on the basis of fairness, consistency and proportionality
At Newmarket Academy we are keen to ensure that we do not discriminate – through application of the behaviour policy – against students whose apparent inappropriate behaviour may be a result of their SEN, disability, racial and / or cultural background.
Please take time to read the Behaviour & Discipline Policy which is available in the attachments section on this page.
