Behaviour Expectations

Everybody has the right to learn, to be respected, to feel safe and to be fairly treated. At Nightingale Community Academy all students are expected to:

Be Ready to Learn

  • Be on time, use the clock or wear a watch
  • Use mobile devices appropriately
  • Eat and drink in appropriate places
  • Dress appropriately

Be Respected

  • Stay for the whole session
  • Use appropriate language
  • Look after the buildings, displays and equipment
  • Listen to others and expect to be listened
  • Keep hands, feet and personal comments to yourself

Be Safe

  • Follow the rules for health and safety
  • Be in the right place at the right time

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
