School Rules

Behaviour

The School Code is printed within the information given in the Home-School agreement and is designed to act as a code of conduct for learning and behaviour for all students.

Sanctions

Whilst we prefer to reward good behaviour with merit marks and other awards, there are occasions when sanctions are needed if you do not behave as we expect Leventhorpe students to behave.  These might take the form of detentions - either at lunchtime or even after school. For very serious offences you may be excluded from coming to school.

Forbidden Items

The following items are not allowed in school: iPads, laser pens, weapons of any kind (including toy weapons), other items which the school deems dangerous or distracting, chewing gum, aerosols, tobacco, or e-cigarette products, matches or lighters, alcohol, other drugs of any kind unless on prescription. If such items are found they will be confiscated and exclusion may result from their possession.

Mobile phones

Mobile phones should not be used at school.  They can be disruptive if left on during lesson time and they are distracting. There is a phone in Student Services which students can use in an emergency. Confiscated phones will be returned only to parents by appointment with the Headteacher at least one day after the phone being confiscated.

What do I need to Bring to School?

All students need a school bag that can carry their books and planners to, from and around the school. Students may also need a draw string-bag to bring their PE kit into school on the days required.  It is a good idea to get into the habit of packing your school bag with the books and materials that you will need for the next day before you go to bed each night.

All students need a pencil case with pens, pencils including colouring pencils, sharpener, protractor and ruler. A full list of equipment and stationery will be included in the New Intake Booklet you will receive on New Intake Day.
