The Government is asking parents to keep children at home whenever possible – schools remain open only for children who need to attend.

Student Expectations

Attitude to Learning

The academy has expectations that are shared between the staff and students so that all students have a right to learn and all staff have a right to facilitate learning: 

  • To always treat others fairly and with respect
  • To take responsibility for their own learning and the learning of others
  • To look after and respect the school environment and resources
  • To be on time and prepared for learning
  • To be actively involved and proud of themselves and the Ormiston Chadwick Academy community


At times it is necessary to issue sanctions to students who do not demonstrate a positive attitude to learning, these may include the following: 

  • 15 minute detention for failure to bring full equipment on any day
  • 30 minute detention for failure to bring in homework
  • Uniform to be corrected, shoes provided if inappropriate footwear is worn
  • Detaining a student at break, lunch or after school
  • Verbal warning may be used in class to make it clear the student’s attitude needs to improve
  • Removal to a ‘Cooling Off’ may be used in class which means a student is asked to leave the class and work with another teacher
  • 20 negative behaviour points in a term to resulting in a Form Tutor or Progress Leader report card. 

All negative attitudes to learning and sanctions are recorded on Class Charts which is the school’s electronic recording system.

What can I do to help?

  • Ensure that your child comes to school every day, on time, in the correct uniform and with basic equipment such as their pen, pencil, ruler and planner
  • Let the school know about any issues that might affect your child’s learning
  • Support your child in homework and other opportunities for home learning and sign their student planner each week
  • Be involved in discussions regarding your child’s progress and attend Parent’s Evening/Progress Days
