Code of Conduct
Attitudes for learning
- Our school is innovative and exciting with a curriculum that is student centred and tailored to individual needs and where all students will make outstanding progress.
- Our students have a clear sense of responsibility, belonging and social awareness. From this their attitudes to learning are positive and aspirational.
- Our staff are excellent teachers, caring mentors and critical friends, expecting the best from everyone and supporting them to achieve it.
- Our school is safe, healthy and happy and prepares every student for a successful life in the 21st century.
The school does not tolerate negative or disruptive behaviour either within and outside the learning environment. Mentoring, intervention and restorative resolution are the main approaches towards continuous improvement of attitudes.
Engagement and Attendance
Engagement with learning at a deep level is an essential part of outstanding learning and achievement. The combination of an excellent curriculum, outstanding teaching and positive attitudes for learning are the cornerstones of Wapping High School’s ethos and our students' success. Excellent attendance is necessary to safeguard these outcomes and is insisted upon at all times.
As a community-focused school we endeavour not to exclude students. Every student should have a strong sense of belonging. Our staff will provide very clear guidance for our students and their families. Interventions for inadequate behaviours are put into action promptly and consistently.
The success of our personalised learning ethos is dependent on the quality of the relationships between all members of the school community. There is an ongoing focus on developing strong relationships between students, parents and staff, which are based on respect and mutual aspiration. Good working relationships are promoted and success rewarded.
