Maltings Academy is committed to the very highest standards of behaviour. The Academy will stop at nothing to fulfil its promise that no child’s progress will ever be negatively impacted by the behaviour of others. It is every child’s right to study in an environment that is safe, respectful and purposeful.

Where students are unable to adhere to these expectations, there will be both sanction and support. The Academy believes sanctions help students to understand that they have fallen below our expectations and it believes that with our support they will be able to better shape their future choices.

Behaviour for Learning is a key focus within the Academy as we endeavour to help students become successful, respectful learners who demonstrate the courage to rise to challenges and the resilience not to falter when tasks are tough.

Essentially, we want an Academy in which students’ behaviour not only allows learning to take place but also promotes learning. To this end our policy is driven by two key objectives:
