Expectations

Attendance

Regular attendance is vital to students achieving well and reaching their full potential. If a young person is unable to attend lessons for any reason their parent or carer should telephone.

SchoolsCompany North Devon Academy (01271 386333) to let us know the reason. Taking holidays during term time cannot be authorised by the academy.

Behaviour

At SchoolsCompany North Devon Academy our expectation is that everyone behaves with respect and consideration for others.  We believe in a restorative approach to conflict and behaviour issues. This means that we seek to recognise and address the causes of the behaviour and find resolution to problems.

Bullying

Bullying of any kind will not be tolerated. Parents and carers will be notified and steps will be taken to protect others from harmful behaviour.

Mobile Phones

Students must hand in their mobile phones at the start of their school day and are returned at the end of their school day. Visitors are expected to keep phones turned off unless it is required for their work. Staff phones are to be kept in the staff room.

Smoking

Smoking (including the use of ‘Vaporizers’) is not allowed on SchoolsCompany Trust property.

Drugs and alcohol

Parents / carers will be asked to collect young people who are thought to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Students who are believed to be in possession of illegal drugs will be reported to the police.

Damage to property and assaults on staff
