School Policies

Behaviour

It is our aim that every member of the school community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. Cockermouth School is a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all.  Our school’s 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 the overall well-being of students and staff and an environment in which everyone feels happy, safe and secure.

Cockermouth School is fully committed to every child receiving the very best education and to ensuring that all students reach their full potential.  In order to achieve this, teachers aim to deliver outstanding lessons and the school rightly has high expectations of its students.  We expect all members of the school community to behave well, work hard, achieve high standards appropriate to their learning abilities, show respect for one another and to ensure that Cockermouth School is a positive and safe place to be.
