Transition Day FAQ's at Jesmond Park Academy

Praise Code

Our principal aim is to encourage high expectations and high standards of achievement, both academic and personal. Our values embrace honesty, trust, reliability, respect for the legitimate rights of others, care for the weaker members of society, regard for the environment and a kindness towards other people.

We believe that a calm, friendly, disciplined atmosphere, in which hard work and co-operation are respected and rewarded, is the best way to promote these values.

Poor behaviour is unacceptable in this school and will not be tolerated. The school will do what is reasonably practicable to eliminate poor behaviour and to support those who need help.

Equally, the school will reward and celebrate the achievements of those that achieve high standards, whether those are in relation to their academic potential or in their attitude and conduct.
