KORU Behaviour Expectations Student Agreement

By attending KORU Independent AP Academy, students are agreeing to uphold and abide by the COVID-19 addition to the Behaviour Policy in order to keep everyone in our community as safe as possible.

During this pandemic and period of reopening, there are additional, strict guidelines that students and staff must adhere to. This policy sets out clear expectations for our school community and clarifies the sanctions that will be in place for any deviation from our high standards and expectations. Please note that KORU Independent AP Academy reserves the right, at any time, to respond to any incident in a manner that best serves the interests of our students, staff and community.

Students are expected to behave safely and sensibly during partial opening and focus on their learning. In order to keep everybody safe, students must follow all social distancing measures put in place and all respiratory and tactile hygiene guidance. It is imperative that students follow all staff requests as much as they can. If they fail to do so, or if their behaviour becomes a concern, sanctions may be applied.

Sanctions

  • Removal to work elsewhere with senior staff. Parents informed.
  • Removed from school site. Parents informed.
  • Loss of privilege of attending future sessions. Parents informed.
  • A period of Fixed Term Exclusion in accordance with the school’s Behaviour for Learning Policy.

The types of behaviours which may result in sanctions are indicated in the school’s Behaviour for Learning Policy.

This is not an exhaustive list. In addition to these behaviours, any deliberate coughing, spitting, threatening, defiant or aggressive language and behaviour or wilful ignoring of social distancing will result in a period of fixed term exclusion.

Expectations of Students during Partial Opening

  • Students must follow all Health and Safety rules in order to keep everyone safe.
  • Students must not attend school if they are unwell and should tell a member of staff immediately if they feel unwell whilst in school.
