Together, Beyond Expectations

Young People as Good Students

Young People as Good Students, Good Role Models, Leaders and Active Citizens

The Grangefield Academy emphasises the need for high standards of student behaviour. There are be clear expectations that students are punctual to school and lessons, ready to learn and allow others to learn. The academy emphasises the development of personal responsibility, self-discipline and self-confidence

Students play a key role in helping to shape their learning experiences through being fully involved in assessment for learning activities and through developing the necessary learning to learn skills. They are expected to be active participants in the learning process.

The Grangefield Academy develops students' leadership skills through participation in a wide range of daytime and extended activities and through their ongoing involvement in 'student voice'. In addition, all students are expected to engage in broader programmes, where the emphasis is on the development of leadership and team working skills, self- reliance, an awareness of the needs of others and being a good citizen. Examples include:

  • Acting as student leaders within school and within our partner schools
  • Caring for older people
  • Working with people with disabilities
  • Involvement in environmental projects
  • Working with younger children
  • Taking part in sporting, artistic and creative events.
