‘We strive to make the relationships between all members of
our school community warm, positive and encouraging’
There are nearly 1000 students in our school so we have to have some rules. All of the rules in our school have been made to make sure that each one of you feels safe, happy and that nothing stops you from achieving.
We have asked for your opinion on many of the rules and we thank you for your contribution. The Barclay Guide to Behaviour (attached below) will clarify all of the rules so you can be sure not to break them.

Relationships with others
Nobody has the right to make another student feel unhappy, scared or intimidated. We are all uniquely different and we have the right to be who we are. The school takes this very seriously indeed.
Very serious sanctions, which could include exclusion from school, are given for the following:
Threatening behaviour that intimidates another student
Swearing and abuse of an adult
Aggressive behaviour towards another student or an adult
Bringing an offensive weapon into school – be it made, adapted or intended.
Bringing alcohol or drugs into school
Interfering with the school’s data and management systems (SIMs)
Misuse of the fire alarm
Starting a fire
Inappropriate use of ICT /Cyber-bullying of staff or students at school or at home
Break & Lunch Zones
In order to maintain behaviour and to ensure the safety of students we have set zones around the school to show where students are and aren’t allowed to be at Break and Lunch. You can find the map below.
Corridors that are marked in red, are no go areas. Please look for teachers in the staff room, but do not go down to their rooms if they are in a no-go area.
A red hatched area means it is no go, for example students are not permitted to go on the field during the winter at lunch and break, also students shouldn’t be standing on the islands is the playground, the approriate areas for students to go and eat their lunch are shown below:
