Student behaviour and safety

City Academy Norwich has very clear expectations on how its students will conduct themselves in both the Academy and the local community.

Preparation for Learning

There are very clear expectations displayed outside every classroom that outline how students should prepare for learning. Students should be correctly dressed in full academy uniform, have a school bag, and equipment. Every teacher conducts formal checks at the start of every lesson.


Students should interact positively with the teacher and their peers, behave in a safe manner as well as work to the best of their ability at all times.

Rewards v Sanctions

The Academy actively promotes and reinforces positive student learning and behaviour through our electronic EPraise rewards system.

Social Time

The Academy is very clear in expecting students to conduct themselves positively, calmly and maturely during their social times. All hot food is eaten from plates sat at a table in the dining room, litter is placed in bins and clearly designated, fully supervised areas are provided for students to spend their social times.

We are very proud to be a calm, orderly and respectful learning environment that thrives on trust, mutual respect and high expectations for all.
