Wellbeing and Duty of Care


At Paxton Academy, it is a primary aim that every member of the school

community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly

and well. We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust

and respect for all. Our school behaviour policy is therefore designed to

support the way in which all members of the school can live and work together

in a supportive way. It aims to promote an environment where everyone feels

happy, safe and secure.

We have a number of school rules, but the primary aim of our behaviour

policy is not a system to enforce rules. It is a means of promoting good

relationships, so that people can work together with the common purpose of

helping everyone to learn. This policy supports the community at Paxton

Academy in aiming to allow everyone to work together in an effective and

considerate way.

At Paxton Academy, we expect every member of the school community to

behave in a considerate way towards others.
