Class expectations:

Code of Conduct

We will be looking at 3 character traits: Respect, Responsibility, and Resilience. Any children following our code of conduct will be presented with ‘Dojo points’ which will enable them to receive a reward. Any children breaking any part of the code of conduct will be given a warning, which may be followed by a sanction. At TPS we have a code of conduct that all children are expected to follow. We need your support to implement this.


Punctuality & Attendance

We are keen to ensure that every pupil attends well and at least achieves our school target of 97%:

  • Children should be in school on time by 8.45am.
  • Registers are taken at 8:55am.
  • Holidays are not permitted during term time unless in exceptional circumstances. Parents who remove their children from school during term time will be fined.
  • We will give incentives for good attendance.



We believe that it’s important that you look smart in your TPS uniform and represent our school with pride. We ask you to start the new academic year by ensuring that you wear full TPS uniform. Please note the following:

· You are allowed to wear studs.

  No trainers (including black trainers)

· No extreme haircuts (including undercuts, number 1 cuts, hair gel)

· Long hair to be tied back (including boys)

· Black/brown/blonde elastic bobbles. If wearing a headband it must be burgundy and no large/oversized ribbons or bows.

Woodland Learning

We are very excited to be introducing ‘Woodland Learning’, where you will be learning a range of new skills in our forest every week. We want you to make the most of every session whatever the weather, so you will need to be appropriately dressed. Please make sure you wear a tracksuit on your ‘Woodland Learning Day’:
