14 Our School Rules Shaftesbury Says... We show respect to each other, no matter what our age, race, ability or gender. We take care not to hurt anyone with our words or actions. We know that if we have a problem or feel angry and upset, there is always someone to talk to. We dress to look smart and be safe. We take care of our school, its buildings and equipment. We remember to move around the school carefully and use the playground safely. We only eat food at break and lunch time. (No fizzy drinks or sweets!) Our school is a smoke free area. 11

15 Autistic Resource Centre (ARC) The ARC caters for students who have been assessed as being on the Autistic Spectrum, and would benefit from access to additional support. Whatever the child s abilities, the ARC team work together to provide support for all students with opportunities to thrive, to learn, and to make the most of all of their skills and talents. The curriculum for ARC students is modified to focus on communication, behaviour and social interaction. Emphasis is also given to developing life skills. 12

16 School Equipment All students need to bring the following pieces of equipment with them everyday. Pencil case Pen Pencils Colouring pencils Rubber Pencil sharpener Ruler 13

17 School Diary Every student at Shaftesbury is given a school diary in September. It is an important link between the school and home allowing teachers and parents or carers to send messages about their children. Your diary will have a copy of your timetable in it. Shaftesbury Merit Merits are given out for hard work, good behaviour and being helpful around school. At the end of each school year the student with the most merits wins a prize! 14

20 Frequently Asked Questions... How does the school deal with bullies? The school has a strong anti-bullying policy. Anyone caught bullying receives a letter home and a sanction from their tutor. At Shaftesbury we listen to anyone who has been bullied and offer support and advice if you want it. Who can I ask for help? There are lots of people you can talk to if you need to, such as any member of staff or your fellow students. There are also Learning Mentors and Teaching Assistants around who help all students. What if I forget something? Don t worry, you should be able to borrow whatever you need from your teacher. If you forget your P.E. or swimming kit you might be able to borrow some spares from school. 17

21 Frequently Asked Questions... How do I pay for my lunch? You will need to pay for your lunch every Monday morning for that week or you can pay half-termly. You can pay by cash. The current cost of a school lunch is 2.10 a day, subject to change. Am I allowed to bring money into school? You don t need to bring money into school because students are not allowed out of school at lunch time. If there is a charity day you will be allowed to bring money in then. Should I have school dinners or sandwiches? Whatever you decide to have, you will each your lunch with your classmates so it doesn't really matter. It is up to you! 18

22 Frequently Asked Questions... Am I allowed to bring my mobile phone to school? Independent travellers are allowed to bring their mobile phones in BUT phones must be handed in at the office in the morning to be collected at the end of the day. How will I travel to school? Most students use the borough transport or their parents bring them to school. Older students come to school on their own after travel training. When will I get homework? You will normally get Maths and English homework on a Friday. You might get homework from other subjects from time to time. Where can I get more information from? You can get more information from our website, 19

23 Learning Mentors Learning mentors help students in and out of the classroom. They provide support, guidance and encouragement. They also run Social Skills groups for students in Key Stage 3 and 4. These groups are for discussing topics such as peer pressure, bullying, relationships, friendships, anger management and building self-esteem. 20

24 The Timetable Your timetable will tell you what lessons you have each day. You will get your timetable on your first day at Shaftesbury in September. A copy of your timetable will be stuck in your homework diary. 21

26 School Council The School Council meets once a week to discuss issues affecting students at Shaftesbury. It is also an opportunity for the student reps to ask the school for particular improvements or additions to be made to school life. The climbing frame, bench and covered seating were all asked for by the School Council. Each tutor group elects one student to represent them at the School Council meetings. Year 7 students get to elect their representatives after Christmas so that they have a chance to get to know each other first before choosing who will represent them. Your tutor group will be given the opportunity, once a week, to discuss any issues or questions you want your rep to speak to the School Council about on your behalf. 23

27 The Jack Petchey Award Once a term the whole school votes for its Jack Petchey winner. The student with the most votes wins 200 to be spent buying something for the school. Jack Petchey money has been used to buy new football goalposts in the playground, cooking equipment for classrooms, a bowling trip for a tutor group and a riverboat trip on the Thames for another tutor group 24
