Abbeyfield School is proud to serve the community of West Northamptonshire that it is located within. As a proud member of the Creative Education trust, we are committed to improving the educational outcomes of students from a range of backgrounds and contexts. In sending your child to Abbeyfield School, you agree to the basic expectations listed below, which are underpinned by some key tenets:
- Parents agree to send their children to the school and in doing so, accept the expectations and rules that it embeds for the good of all.
- All students have an entitlement to learn and prosper in an environment that is free from disruption and behaviour that detracts from learning.
- Respect is demonstrated and not earned - our behaviour speaks about ourselves, not others and we show the same respect to all members of our community.
- Parents and students support the behavioural expectations of the school and its requirement to exist for the good of an entire student body
- Abusive behaviour towards staff or stakeholders will not be tolerated under any circumstances
Working in Partnership
It is incredibly important for any school and the families it serves to work together in order to support students with the outcomes we aspire for them to achieve. In supporting the above expectations, we aim to provide students with the greatest platform to achieve the goals that they set for themselves. This comes from a central level of support from families in terms of working with us for the good of your most precious resource, your children. However, parents also play an incredibly important role in the partnership of authority that exists for studnets. We may not always agree, but we request that you disagree privately for the good of your child's perception of the systems they exist within. In doing so, you support the tools that we have to develop aspirational, moral and articulate young people.
And when it comes to developing the high standards we need, it's time to stop working against our teachers and start working with them. Teachers don't go in to education to get rich. They don't go in to education because they don't believe in their children. They want their children to succeed, but we've got to give them the tools.
Independent learning provides a sound platform for students to consolidate their learning from within the classroom. Information related to key online platforms can be found in the Academic section of the website.
