Behaviour policy

Core Ethos: All members of the Academy community have the right to be treated with dignity and respect. All members of the Academy community have the responsibility to uphold our behaviour policy.

Ark William Parker Academy is committed to being a high achieving learning environment which is underpinned by effective management of student behaviour.  All members of the Academy community are expected to support the academy ethos and help maintain an atmosphere which is conducive to great learning. All adults employed in the Academy are responsible for the leadership of student behaviour.

Excellent behaviour is central to educational success and success in future life.

AWPA pillars for exemplary behaviour:

Ark William Parker Academy aims to create, and to maintain, a community which is considerate, and where all interactions involving staff and students are based on mutual respect and good manners.

All adults within the Academy community will model, through all aspects of our work, the behaviours that we seek to instil in our students, and we will not tolerate any behaviour that hinders the learning and progress of others.

AWPA’s pillars will be upheld through explicit teaching as well as through our actions and interactions with students.

  • B      BRAVERY – Take risks. You control your destiny.
  • R      RESPONSIBILITY – Give back. Take care of yourself and others.
  •       INTEGRITY – Have honour. Stand up for what is right.
  • D     DISCOVERY – Seek knowledge. Explore the unknown.
  • G     GRIT – Be tenacious. Persevere.
  • E      EXCELLENCE – Show pride. Give 100% in everything you do.

It is a requirement of every member of staff to consistently apply and uphold the Academy behaviour expectations in the classroom, around the Academy and when supervising students outside of the Academy.
