The National Mathematics and Science College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. It is our aim that all students fulfil their potential.

College Ethos

The National Science and Mathematics College is expected to be a place where:
• all individuals are respected, and their individuality valued;
• students are encouraged to achieve;
• self-discipline is promoted, and good behaviour is the norm;
• rewards and sanctions are applied fairly and consistently;
• bullying, disruption and harassment are not tolerated;
• early intervention is the norm;
• there is an emphasis on self-discipline

The ethos of our college is such that all who come here are valued as individuals. Students are given clear guidance as to what is, and is not, acceptable behaviour, so that they can develop their own moral code. It is important that each person is treated fairly and is shown respect by other students and adults. Students should never be allowed to feel that sexism, elitism, racism etc. are acceptable. We expect all members of our college – students, parents and staff – to adhere to the guidelines, requiring these to be applied consistently. All members of staff have an important role to play in promoting good behaviour. A particular strength is our approach to Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development (SMSC).
