Culture, Conduct & Community
at Hugh Christie

The culture of the school, the conduct expected and the community it creates is the responsibility of everyone: the teachers, support staff and the students. Everyone is on the same team. Everyone has an obligation to create and nurture a positive environment in which we are all ready to learn, respectful of oneself and of others and take responsibility for our actions. We have high expectations that all pupils will:

Be Ready – Be Respectful – Be Responsible



  • To create a community where high standards of conduct result in high quality learning. 

  • To create a community where all staff and students feel a sense of belonging. 

  • To foster a culture where all staff and students are treated fairly, are shown respect and take responsibility for their actions and words. 

  • To recognise and reward positive contributions to the community and culture of the school.  

  • To promote personal respectful conduct towards everyone at the school. 

Be ready to have a successful day

Be responsible for your own learning and behaviour

  • Behave well at all times. STOP and LISTEN if staff need to speak with you about your behaviour. Use strategies to help you remain calm.

  • If you bring a mobile phone to school, it must be used responsibly.

  • Be positive and enthusiastic about your learning,  Always do your best to complete your learning. Present your written work using your best presentation and literacy. Develop your word power.

Be respectful to yourself, to everyone and to everything in our school community.

  • Be KIND and treat everyone you meet as you like to be treated yourself. Offer to help without always being asked.
