Walton High’s Code of Conduct

Walton High is a centre of learning – a place where the fun and fundamentals of learning matter.

Everyone at Walton High has a right to attend classes, take part in activities and to carry out their duties without being hindered by others. 

There are no innocent bystanders when learning is being disrupted or when someone is being hurt or belittled.

Students, staff, parents and governors at Walton High have a responsibility to see that this Code of Conduct works in practice
