WestKing STUDENT BEHAVIOUR CHARTER

 

The WestKing Student Behaviour Charter is here to make your College a safe

place to learn, free from disruption, distraction and acts of disobedience.

WestKing College needs you to:

 

  1. Wear your ID card at all times so your photo can be clearly seen, and, if requested, hand it to a member of staff for closer inspection

  2. Avoid bullying and behave respectfully to other students and members of staff at all times.

  3. Understand the consequences of sexual violence, sexual harassment and sexual stereotyping and these are not tolerated and are completely unacceptable at WestKing.

  4. Attend all your lessons on time and inform your teacher immediately if you are going to be late or absent

  5. Complete your college work to the best of your ability and meet all college work deadlines

  6. Remember to bring the books and equipment you need to every lesson

  7. Ensure the work you hand in is your own. Don’t cheat or plagiarise (copy) other people’s work

  8. Be respectful and tolerant towards others and uphold British Values

  9. Remove hoods when in college

  10. Follow college health and safety procedures

  11. Respect college property and the possessions of others

  12. Observe the college’s ‘no alcohol and no drugs” rule. Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside the building

  13. Follow the college’s policy on the proper use of IT equipment

  14. Follow staff instructions in college and during online lessons

  15. Act in a way which upholds the college’s good reputation when you are in the College and in the local community

  16. Check that your teachers and tutor have your correct family and personal contact details and let them know immediately if these change

  17. Tell a member of staff if you experience or become aware of any safeguarding concerns elsewhere. These concerns could include your safety, the safety of others, sexual harassment, bullying, harassment and radicalisation towards violent extremism both online and offline

 

Zero Tolerance:

 

Westking takes a zero tolerance approach towards students found to be in possession of weapons or carrying out acts or threats of violence.

 

Acts of sexual violence such as, stalking, grabbing bottoms, breasts and genitalia and flicking bras and lifting skirts, are also included in this list as these are potentially criminal in nature.

If you are caught with a weapon or have committed an act of sexual violence:

 

  • The police will be contacted, and you will be suspended immediately

  • Following a college investigation and a Behaviour Management Hearing, it is highly likely that you will be permanently excluded from College

 

WestKing is a place where you are supported to:

  • Achieve your educational and work-related hopes and ambitions

  • Take advantage of all face to face and/or online learning opportunities

  • Prepare for the world of work

  • Study effectively in the college and online

  • Make friends and study partners

  • Take part in face-to-face or online social activities and events
