Behaviour for Learning

The Freebrough Values

At Freebrough Academy we encourage all members of the school community to live by their values. 

The Freebrough values are:


  • We openly welcome new people
  • We show patience, understanding and support for each other
  • We help each other in school and out in the community


  • We have mutual respect between staff and students
  • We win and lose gracefully
  • We treat others as we would wish to be treated
  • We listen to the views of others and use good manners
  • We respect ourselves and do not take part in risky behaviour


  • We make the effort and exceed expectations
  • We celebrate when someone does well
  • We believe in our own talents and push ourselves to achieve our targets


  • We do not give up when things get tough
  • We think positively and keep trying
  • We keep our goals in mind and work hard to achieve them


  • We work hard to become good role models
  • We are ambitious
  • We follow our dreams and help others to do the same


  • We stand up for what we believe in
  • We are not afraid to stand up and speak in front of others
  • We try new things even if we are unsure


  • We treat everyone the same – regardless of our differences
  • We do not judge people without getting to know them
  • We don’t leave people out


Learning Ladder

The Academy uses a learning ladder to reward and issue consequences to the students.  You will find a copy of this in each classroom close to the board.

We reward students for exceptional behaviour using the R1-4 on the ladder and equally use C1-4 for students not following expectations.


Expert Learners

Students who regularly exceed our expectations in a wide range of categories including attendance, punctuality, attitude to learning, participation in extra curricular activities and living the Freebrough Values may be awarded Expert Learner status.  They are given a pin badge to wear on their blazer and are eligible for a range of rewards and privileges.
