Where it all started:
For any community to be able to function, there has to be an agreed set of standards and rules. This page sets out the standards and rules for pupils at Kesgrave High School.
Be polite, courteous and considerate at all times.
- In all of your daily routine at home, in school or in the street, the above comment should apply.
- Walk on the left hand side of the corridors and carry your belongings properly by your side, not over your shoulders.
- Do not drop litter anywhere on the school site. There are plenty of bins provided.
- At the end of the day, clear up behind you. If directed, put chairs up, close windows and take all of your belongings home.
- On leaving school, exit from the subway quickly and do not mount your bicycle until you are clear of crowds and certainly not in the subway or in the school grounds. If you catch a bus, wait in the correct place and do not cause an obstruction at the school gate.
- When biking to school, remember to look out for pedestrians and cycle no more than two abreast. Also cycle in a caring and responsible manner.
- When eating in the school canteen, leave your table as you would expect to find it: rubbish in the bins, cutlery and crockery stacked as required.
Respect all property: your own, other people's and the school's.
- We all care about our own property - as a school let us make sure we treat all property with respect.
- Canned drinks can make a mess, so only have them outside or in the canteen.
- Bicycles are expensive. Park in the correct place, lock it up and leave all other bicycles alone.
- Televisions and other electrical equipment in classrooms is the property of the school and should not be touched under any circumstances, except when directed by a member of staff to do so.
- Your form room is your base in school - maintain high standards yourself and try to ensure that nobody else lowers them.
- Chewing gum is messy and causes damage - it is not allowed in school.
Keep up the good reputation of the school.
- The success of the school and your success within it depends on a good reputation being maintained in all aspects of school life. Your appearance and the wearing of uniform is an important part of this.
- Jewellery should not be worn in school. The only exception to this are a single set of stud earrings and a watch.
- Make up and nail varnish should not be worn to school.
- Coats are an outside item of clothing and look out of place indoors. When in school leave them in your locker or in your bag.
- You must address visitors to the school politely and assist them wherever possible.
- Your uniform should be smart and in the best possible order.
