Approach to Learning

Behaviour (Respect) and Approach to for Learning (Attitude)

We believe students need to take pride in their learning during their time at Marriotts.

We expect students to engage in the lesson activities and complete homework set by their teachers. Students are required to maintain good presentation in their books so that they are able to demonstrate their learning journey across the year. 

The ‘Be Kind’ element of our school ethos is central to our positive community and learning environment. We expect students to be kind at all times, modeling the qualities needed to be a good citizen and represent Marriotts at all times when wearing the school uniform. 

Marriotts School Rules:

  • Aim High, Work Hard, Be Kind
  • Respect, Attitude, Ownership
  • Follow the Community Code

To achieve safety outside of lessons, we expect all students to follow the Community Code at all times: 

  • Walk, don’t run
  • Talk, don’t shout
  • Sit down or go outside
  • Use the bins provided
  •  No electronic devices
  • Food and drink in the Dining Hall or Café area only
  • Keep to the left on stairs and along corridors. 

We track students’ attitude to their learning by using our Approach to Learning Zone (ATL) strategy aimed to motivate and intervene to ensure students’ progress each module. The zones correspond with the average ATL score students receive over a Module across all their subjects. Below is an example of the ATL Zone parameters:
