Burnham Grammar School is a stimulating, supportive, diverse community committed to developing:

Our students are extended and supported so that they develop a passion for learning, aiming to reach their personal best.


Our students learn to take risks and to excel through challenge and excitement


Our students gain from the diversity of their backgrounds and are encouraged to bring them fully into the local and world community


Our students and staff work together and learn to regard kindness and mutual support as strengths

The School's Code of Conduct Policy (06.2006)

Burnham Grammar School aims to be a stimulating and supportive well ordered community in which the potential of all its students can be extensively developed so that when they leave they are well equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to lead a full and satisfying life.

The atmosphere of the school should be one in which teaching staff, non teaching staff and students can enjoy working and in which they can carry out their roles of educators and students effectively.

In order for these aims to be fulfilled it is essential that every member of the school community behaves in a way that shows respect for these aspirations.

This will include having Our Code of Conduct

We can do this through:

CONSIDERATION for each other:

  • Ensuring our words and actions do not offend others or adversely affect their learning.
  • Trusting and accepting other people
  • Being polite, helpful and co-operative

CONSIDERATION for ourselves

  • Working hard and fulfilling our potential
  • Being truthful
  • Dressing correctly  

CONSIDERATION for our environment  

  • Avoiding wasting resources
  • Caring for furniture and equipment
  • Putting litter into bins
  • Respecting displays
  • Making the learning environment as pleasant as possible

CONSIDERATION for safety and protection  

  • Following health and safety instructions
  • Reporting anything unsafe to the caretaker
  • Safeguarding and protecting everyone from harm
  • Reporting any worries about harm (at home or at school) to the Headteacher or a deputy

In practice all members of the community will

BE PUNCTUAL: attend morning and afternoon registrations and avoid late arrival at lessons.

SPEAK CONSIDERATELY: avoid shouting and offensive language.

BE READY FOR LESSONS: have the necessary materials and have completed any preparation.

CLEAR UP after lessons, break and lunch and at the end of the day.

MOVE IN AN ORDERLY WAY : avoid running; hold doors open for other people; do not carry bags in a way that causes inconvenience to others; walk on the left of busy stairs and corridors.


Teachers will endeavour to:

recognise and encourage achievement and success

prepare appropriate work for all the students in the group

provide opportunities for students to be actively involved in their learning

assess students' work regularly

maintain an orderly atmosphere in the classroom

use Accelerated Learning techniques to develop a low stress learning environment

Students should endeavour to

progress with their work to the best of their ability

submit independent study tasks punctually

be prepared to work with anyone else in the group

ask for help when necessary

be prepared to wait for their turn

accept advice and guidance from the teacher

be prepared to listen to other people

Have you a question you need answering?
Send it to: webmaster

What should you do if your school bus hasn't turned up?

If you've missed it find an alternative.
If the school bus has not turned up & is more than half an hour late after the time it should have arrived, you may order a taxi but only as a last resort. It is not acceptable to stay at home for this reason

What is summer uniform and when may students wear it?

When the weather is hot, students no longer need to bring their blazers to school. It is therefore even more important that all shirts are tucked in both in school, and on the journey to and from school. Short-sleeved shirts may be worn.

Also, girls must wear black or grey tights or white, grey or black socks. Natural coloured tights are not uniform. Shoes with obvious high-heels are also not allowed for health and safety reasons.

Summer uniform may be worn once it has been announced in the Briefing - this year it applies from 12th June 2006 till end of summer term.
