Ready To Learn

Ready To Learn

We have exceptionally high expectations of all our students with respect to behaviour and conduct, both within lessons and during informal times at Holyrood. However, we are not complacent and continue to seek to improve all that we do.

Ready to Learn is our new approach to supporting teachers and students to tackle low level disruption in classrooms. We have consulted with students and staff in order to agree a set of expectations for the whole academy environment and for the classroom.

Classroom expectations:

• Arrive promptly without disruption.
• Sit where you are asked.
• Be ready to learn within 30 seconds.
• Stay on task.
• Follow instructions from all adults.
• Allow others to learn.
• Be polite, listen and treat others with respect.
• Treat the classroom environment with respect.

Students are expected to follow the mobile phone policy.  
Students who disrupt learning will be given a single Ready to Learn warning.
Students who continue to disrupt learning will be sent to Ready to Learn.


Outside of the classroom expectations:

• Walk indoors and move calmly around the site.
• Use appropriate language at an appropriate volume.
• Be polite and treat others with respect.
• Put litter in the bins.
• Eat in the designated areas.
• Respect the Academy site and other people’s property.
• Wear uniform correctly.
• Follow instructions from all adults and duty staff.

Students who don’t meet these expectations will be asked to attend a 20 minute Red Card detention in E3 at break time.  
Students can only eat in the top and bottom site halls or outside.
Students are expected to follow the mobile phone policy.
