Post 16 Code
We shall try to work with you on an adult basis and therefore you will be given guidelines and expectations to consider. We expect that any issue arising from these will be resolved by discussion and consideration in common sense ways. We request that all students set a positive example and are mindful of the good image of Belfairs Post 16.
Attendance and punctuality
It is vital that you attend regularly and are always punctual to lessons and tutorial sessions. Proper procedures should be followed in case of absence or lateness. Attendance falling below 93% will lead to disciplinary procedures.
Our P16 dress code must be adhered to, please click here to view.
Facilities and Private Study
You will have Private Study assigned to your timetable when not in subject lessons. This will be supervised by teaching staff and you are expected to complete homework and independent study. Year 12 students will make use of the Annex for these lessons, whilst Year 13 will have access to our newly enlarged Private Study Base. All students can access our Café area for break and lunch as well as any Post 16 facilities before and after school.
Please delete the section 'Private Study', 'Post 16 Library' and 'Use of non-timetabled time'.
The use of phones (including listening to music on headphones and earphones) should be discreet, should not impact on yours and others' learning and only be done in Post 16 areas. They should not be visible around the Academy and they will be confiscated if seen in the corridors. The lower school operate a zero-smart product policy.
Students are to refrain from smoking on or near the premises. This is a disciplinary issue for offenders.
There is no parking available for cars. Currently we have provision on site for bicycles but not for mopeds/motorbikes.
Alcohol & Illegal Substances
Alcohol and illegal substances are strictly prohibited and will lead to permanent exclusion.
Students are obviously expected to look after and respect our resources. There are standard procedures with regards to the use and security of ICT facilities to which students must adhere.
Use of Dining Hall
Post 16 students are able to use the Canteen and Cafe facilities to purchase food and are asked to leave them in good order.
These are firm expectations of all students enrolling for Post 16 studies at Belfairs. We expect the utmost courtesy and good manners at all times from all students.
