Figure of Eight Education is committed to the creation of teaching and learning environments where the learning and social and personal needs of young people are adequately addressed. We aim to empower pupils to achieve in an atmosphere of safety and mutual respect. By removing barriers to learning that have been entrenched in former educational settings we work to support transfers back to mainstream schools, further education, employment or training. Everyone is expected to behave in a reasonable way, to accept responsibility for their behaviour and to encourage others to do the same. It is acknowledged that behaviour and good discipline is a whole responsibility. To read our behaviour policy
