The academy has reintroduced face coverings for students, staff and visitors in communal areas of the academy from Tuesday 29 November.

Behaviour expectations

These are designed to ensure students are safe and have a clear understanding of the expectations on them as learners. Learning habits are used to support students with the day to day practicalities of school life such as attendance, organisation, homework and behaviour in lessons.

The Dixons Cottingley Academy learning habits are as follow:

Uniform We will insist on perfect uniform: not nearly perfect but perfect. We expect all students to be wear their uniforms neatly and with pride.

Homework Students are expected to complete all homework set, on time and to a good standard.

On-task We insist on focused learning in the classroom to ensure that learning is maximised for all students.

Punctual All students should attend school and classes on time, every time.

Equipment Students should arrive to lessons with the right equipment, so that no learning time is interrupted. Students do this without carrying bags, this reduces wasted time packing and unpacking at the start and end of each lesson.

No answering back Students should respect their peers and teachers.

Instead of excusing bad learning habits we will insist on good learning habits every day, we have high expectations and make no excuses.
