Partnership, working together and celebrating our diverse cultures, are the corner stone of our school community.

Staff will demonstrate due consideration and respect for their students. Students' rights to voice opinions will be recognised and staff will work with students to deal with their concerns.
The efforts which members of staff make to improve the learning process and promote partnership will be recognised by students adopting an active role in their own learning. 

When dealing with difficult situations we will seek to resolve problems by mediation, respecting the feelings of all involved.
