Behaviour

Thomas Clarkson Academy is committed to creating an environment where exemplary behaviour is at the heart of productive learning. Everyone is expected to maintain the highest standards of personal conduct, to accept responsibility for their behaviour and encourage others to do the same.

We promote positive values and behaviour and encourage everyone to cooperate with and respect others as well as themselves. The emphasis is on choice – pupils are taught the consequences of their behaviour and are encouraged to take responsibility for it.
