Royal Wootton Bassett Academy is one of the largest secondary schools in Wiltshire with over 1,800 students aged 11-19. We challenge and inspire pupils to achieve beyond their initial expectations. We aim to equip our students to become global citizens of the future able to make a positive contribution to society and will leave us with the skills necessary for life in an ever-changing, highly technological world.
This outstanding school prepares its students exceptionally well for their future lives. Ofsted 2010. We were judged outstanding in all 27 categories and are rightly proud of the fact we are the only 11-18 school to achieve this under that framework. In November 2013 the Academy was again awarded Outstanding in every category.
We converted to academy status on 1st July 2011 and now need to move beyond outstanding. Teaching and Learning is our highest priority and our success depends on the passion and skills of its staff.
The ethos of the School is based on mutual respect, support and encouragement to bring out the best in people. We recognise that the quality of learning, teaching and behaviour are inseparable issues and that the vast majority of our pupils act in a sensible and appropriate manner and have a keen desire to learn.
It is important, however, that positive standards of behaviour are promoted to all in a manner which is easily understood to which pupils, parents and staff all subscribe. Good order and discipline are essential to the provision of high standards of education.
There are two underlying principles behind this policy:
1. An acknowledgement that we all have rights, and that with such rights come responsibilities to ourselves, others And the School.
2. To be part of a community in which we treat others as we would wish to be treated.
