File Behaviour for Learning 2015

In our drive to move Baysgarth School to outstanding, we have to ensure the highest possible standards of behaviour and conduct.
We have very high expectations of our students and a belief that every student is capable of meeting them.
The Behaviour for Learning system is one that has been tried and tested in numerous schools and has been in place at Baysgarth in part for a number of years. It is based on the principle that once students know the rules and the consequences, they can make the right choices for themselves and for others.
As part of our commitment to raising standards at Baysgarth School we are focusing on students’ behaviour and have been communicating to students through assemblies and form time the importance of making the right choices. We have included a parents’ guide to ensure that the partnership between school and home can support students in reaching our high expectations.
We would like to thank you in advance for your support in moving Baysgarth towards becoming an outstanding school and if you have any queries or questions please contact your child’s form tutor in the first instance.

Mr R Briggs
Headteacher

Ray Smithson - former Headteacher of Baysgarth

We were very sad to hear about the passing of the former Headteacher, Ray Smithson; Ray was the first Headteacher of this comprehensive school and took over under reorganisation in 1975 to set up the new school. He was a much loved member of the community who is fondly remembered by former students, many of whom continue to be associated with the school as staff or parents/grandparents.
Our thoughts are with his family and a book of condolence will be available in the school office until Friday 13 February for any staff or parents who wish to leave their thoughts or messages.
