CODE OF CONDUCT

Category: School discipline

The code of conduct at Embury College is aimed at establishing and maintaining respect for the ethos and values of the school. The code serves to create a set of guidelines for acceptable behaviour, as well as punishments that may be implemented if the code is breached in any way. It should be kept in mind that although the code is comprehensive in its structure and content, each individual punishment will be assessed in the light of the transgression committed. Learners at the college are expected to be familiar with the code and are required to maintain strict obedience to the rules therein. Changes to the code may be made at the discretion of the school and learners will be notified immediately should such alterations be enforced.

SCHOOL ETHOS

Empathy for the community and a reverence for the past are rooted in the school. Values such as honour, loyalty, tolerance and respect are constantly supported and encouraged in all learners. The school has been established on a set of shared values upon which all policies and actions are based. For Embury College and its staff, the future means a series of challenges charged with innovation and a constant striving to achieve and maintain excellence.
