The Rule of Law

All adults at Thorpe Lea whether senior leaders, teachers, support staff or governors, have a duty to protect children from harm and promote British Law and British Values.

Thorpe Lea has a crucial part to play in providing a positive role model for all children and to build positive links with our local community.

The ‘rule of law’ is fundamental to our behaviour management, and as a school we have high expectations of all members of our school community.

The rule of law is built on firm foundations where;

  • Rules are created to provide a safe environment
  • Rules are clearly defined
  • Rules are applied equally, to all
  • Rules ensure fairness for all
  • We all have a responsibility to adhere to these rules and accept that there are consequences if they are broken
  • Pupils contribute towards the rules which maintain a safe and fair school
