Expectations and Behaviour

At Barr’s Hill School our commitment to our students and to you is very clear. We expect to teach our students to the highest of standards; to support them to be successful and to prepare them for higher education or employment. An important part of this is to keep them safe and happy when they are here with us. High standards of student behaviour and discipline provide a positive environment in which teachers can teach and students can learn.

The ethos of Barr’s Hill School is built around a set of core values:

Our students are encouraged to build these values in a number of ways during their time at Barr’s Hill, both inside and outside of the classroom.

A good starting point for all students is that they come to school every day in full uniform and with their TRIO.  A TRIO consists of: a filled pencil case including pens, pencils, ruler, rubber and scientific calculator, their school planner and a small English dictionary. Being fully prepared at the start of the day will avoid classroom sanctions.

It is very important that we work closely with parents to ensure that our expectations and rules are adhered to.
