Here at St Nicholas we expect the very best from every member of our community in all that we do.
We refer to this as the ‘4 Rs‘
There are four core expectations that students at St Nicholas Catholic High School believe are central to good behaviour: respect for others, respect for yourself and respect for the School.
Respect for others
Treat all other people in the same way as you would like to be treated
Listen to and accept the views of others
Have an acceptance of others’ learning
Encourage and help those around you
Respect school property and the property of others
Language should never be racist, sexist, homophobic or transphobic; no student should accept or tolerate such language.
Respect for yourself
Use your time to good effect and try your best at everything you attempt
Accept praise and respond positively to criticism
Dress neatly, wear the correct school uniform and take pride in your appearance
Respect for the School
Represent the School in a way that demonstrates the values of the St Nicholas Catholic High School.
Respect others’ learning environment
Arrive at school, lessons and activities on time and with the correct equipment and uniform
Participate enthusiastically in all lessons and activities
Develop a responsible approach to class work and homework
Ready to Learn
Arrive at school, lessons and activities on time
Arrive with the correct equipment and books for your lesson
Wear the correct uniform at all times
Arrive with a positive attitude and determination to succeed
To assist in meeting these expectations, students at St Nicholas Catholic High School expect the rules set out by staff to be enforced fairly and consistently. Students understand that they must
follow the expectations set out in the School Planner at all times and accept the consequences if these expectations are not met.
