Code of conduct

Student Code of Conduct

We want Samuel Ryder Academy to be a happy and peaceful community in which to learn. Our Code of Conduct is designed to help students understand what we mean by this. It is not an exhaustive list of aspirations and things to avoid; instead it outlines key points so students have clear examples of what we expect from them.

Students have the right to:

  • learn without disruption
  • be free from bullying of any kind
  • feel safe
  • enjoy equal opportunities
  • exist within the school without fear of prejudice of any kind from any member of the community.

The school community will not tolerate:

  • bullying of any kind
  • any type of violence
  • vandalism, graffiti, or litter
  • cruel or insensitive behaviour
  • possession of or dealing in drugs or alcohol
  • smoking cigarettes
  • misuse of solvents
  • any signs of disrespect from any member of the community
  • arriving late to school or to lessons
  • leaving the school without permission or missing lessons.

In our school we will try to:

  • respect ourselves
  • respect each other
  • do our best
  • act with honesty and responsibility
  • show ourselves in the best light
  • be polite and courteous
  • enjoy learning
  • participate in all aspects of school life.

We publish our Student Code of Conduct on our website and in students’ planners and refer to it in our rewards and behaviour management systems.

EduLink One

Samuel Ryder Academy uses a portal called EduLink One which provides a convenient and accessible solution for the school to communicate with parents on all aspects of school life and also allows parents to access all information about their child in one place.  


What Can EduLink One Do?

Some of the EduLink One features which parents may find useful are listed below:

  • Absence Reporting - Parents can easily report their child absent from school due to illness. They will also be notified via email if their child is absent from school.
  • Account Info - This screen will allow parents to see general information that we hold about their child.
  • Achievement - Will show parents any achievements awarded to their child.
  • Attendance - Parents will be able to view statutory attendance statistics for their child.
  • Behaviour - This will give parents access to the behaviour records for their child.
  • Calendar - This will be populated with upcoming events, parents’ evening dates and school holidays. If a dot is showing under a date, it means there are one or more events happening that day. Click the date to find out more information.
  • Catering – This screen links to ParentPay accounts, it will let parents know what their child has chosen to eat and the balance on their account.  
  • Contacts - This screen will show parents the contact information we hold on file for them.
  • Documents – In this section parents can find the annual school report for their child.
  • Exams - This will give parents information about any exams their child may be taking. An exam timetable as well as exam entries are displayed.
  • Forms – On occasion we will ask parents to complete reply slips through EduLink One, these are found in the forms section.
  • Homework - The homework screen allows parents to see all of the homework that has been set for their child. The screen also allows parents to swipe through to see homework that has been completed.
  • Messaging - We now communicate with parents via email and push notifications to the app. Parents will receive instant paperless communications into the EduLink One communicator tool as well as to their email inbox. Parents can also use EduLink One to contact their child’s teachers.
  • Timetable - This gives parents a view of their child’s current timetable and will be kept up to date with any changes of teachers, groups or rooms as they happen. 
  • Update Information – Parents can access and edit their contact details and their child’s information and consents, keeping the school up to date with any changes. (Note: This data can be accessed by any parent with Parental Responsibility and an EduLink One log-in).
