What Is NTS-ness?
It is crucial that as we continue to develop as a school and that we retain the atmosphere and environment that is ‘NTS’. We call it NTS-ness. We expect to ‘NTS’ all new members of our community and constantly remind existing staff of the importance of NTS-ness. Staff and pupils need to understand why we are special, how we achieved this status and recognise that it is not a ‘given’. To this end, we want everyone to have pride in ‘NTS-ness’.
We expect staff to:
- Have a common understanding of what the standards and expectations of NTS are
- Be ‘on-board’ in terms of acting on these standards and expectations (uniform, behaviour, equipment, manners etc.)
We expect pupils to:
- Look the part
- Act the part
- Act in a responsible, thoughtful and decent manner
- Take pride in our school and the standards we uphold
