Climate for Learning

As part of KES’ ethos to encourage students to always strive to achieve their ‘Personal Best’, the school has set out a list of expectations for the classroom, that create the best climate for learning and help students to learn to the best of their abilities. These expectations are displayed in all classrooms and teachers regularly encourage students to follow them.

Students must:

ARRIVE ON TIME
with what is needed for the lesson

UNIFORM
Make sure yours is correct.

READY TO LEARN
Equipped for learning… pen, pencil, ruler, calculator, handbook out.

GET LEARNING
Get started on the Do It Now activity as soon as possible.

LISTEN
to the teacher so that you understand what you need to do.

RESPECT
Don’t stop others learning, or make it difficult for the teacher to lead the lesson.

ENGAGE
fully with the whole lesson – try your best! 

WATER
Being hydrated helps learning, but only water in a clear plastic bottle!

HOMEWORK 
Use SMHW regularly and make sure you complete any homework on time and to the best of your ability.
