Myton School’s Behaviour Policy

Myton School’s ‘Behaviour for Life’ policy has 10 attributes which we believe contribute to making young people successful at school and in the workplace. We constantly remind students of these habits and reward their application. When we discuss students’ performance at school we will phrase it in terms of these habits.

Parents/carers will receive emails which detail rewards received and, if necessary, alert you if habits have not been applied.
