Code of Conduct

The Code of Conduct is printed in full in the contact diary and is on display in all classrooms. It shows our expectations of pupils and illustrates the attitude and approach needed for the Poly to be a hard-working, friendly and happy place. Pupils will be introduced to the Code of Conduct in September; there is also a copy with this information pack. We have the Rule of 3 in place - Be Ready, Be Respectful and Be Safe. These three points underpin everything we do.

As a school, our expectations of students, staff and parents are set out in our Code of Conduct, which is listed below. Woolwich Polytechnic School for Boys aims to provide the atmosphere and promote the attitudes, which will allow each pupil to develop their talents to the full.
