At Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy we are dedicated to ensuring that our academy environment supports learning and the wellbeing of all students and staff through a strong sense of community cohesion. We work hard to provide a safe academy where students feel included in every aspect of academy life and comfortable to voice their opinions. We pride ourselves in a strong pastoral support programme so that all students are able to flourish.
We believe that all students should be aware of the standards of behaviour that are expected of them, and take responsibility for promoting the positive culture of OBA. We hope that by encouraging positive behaviour patterns we can promote good relationships throughout the academy built on trust and understanding, and that through the use of this policy we can support all of our students in developing a high level of social awareness. Our aim is to ensure that all our students leave the academy with the key skills they need to continue to progress to the best of their ability in all areas of life.
Lucere Aude Through Courage & Choices
Our culture and ethos at the Academy are underpinned by our mantra of ‘Lucere Aude’, Daring to Shine. We expect our students to demonstrate this by showing courage and giving them the choices, they need to succeed.
We expect our students to choose to be punctual, to arrive to lessons on time and equipped ready to learn. The equipment they require at a minimum is a pen, pencil, ruler, rubber, timetable and a bag. These items will be checked on a regular basis by their form tutor. Our students must be respectful to themselves, each other, their staff and our excellent facilities.
All of our students are expected to show courage by trying new things and showing resilience when times get tough.
Below are our Academies non-negotiables that all students must follow:
- 1) Arrive to lesson on time, and be equipped.
- 2) Enter the classroom quietly and follow your teacher’s instructions.
- 3) Respect ourselves, our staff, each other and our academy - speak politely and raise your hand if you wish to speak in lesson.
- 4) Try your best and work hard for the full one-hour lesson.
- 5) Learn something new and be resilient - keep going even when the work is difficult.
- 6) Leave quietly in single file when dismissed by your class teacher and go straight to where you should be next.
