At Castle Manor Academy we have incredibly high expectations and these are covered in detail in our Expectations for Learning Policy. These expectations cover all aspects of school life ranging from uniform and equipment, to school trip behaviour and finer details are contained in the relevant sections of the website.

Our PROUD in 10 covers the key aspects we expect students to demonstrate every single day. These are as follows:

  1. Be here every day, on time
  2. Come fully equipped
  3. Wear uniform professionally
  4. Enter the room and complete the lesson as the teacher expects
  5. Sit in assigned seats and “SLANT”*
  6. Apply best effort to every task
  7. Stand behind your chair silently before being dismissed
  8. Speak in full sentences using standard English
  9. Take the right STEPS** and be polite
  10. Keep your hands, feet and objects to yourself

*SLANT stands for Sit up straight, Listen, Answer questions, Never interrupt and Track the teacher

**STEPS stands for Saying “Miss” and “Sir”, “Thank you”, “Excuse me”, “Please” and Smile
