Values and vision
Saltash Community School aims to provide a calm and orderly learning environment in which good behaviour results from self-discipline and care and respect for others. High standards of behaviour are believed to be essential at all times. The school has a Code of Learning written by the students themselves, while parents are asked to sign a Home-School Agreement to show they support the behaviour policy when their children join the school.
“Achievement across the school is improving strongly, including in English and mathematics where students now make very good progress. Students feel safe and the behaviour is outstanding. Students are proud of their school. They are polite, courteous and keen to achieve well. The sixth form is good. Student numbers are rising, and provision is good. Achievement is improving rapidly with an increasing proportion achieving the highest grades.”
