Basic Standards

We place a great deal of value in our students getting 'the basics' right. Our Basic Standards agenda is one of the foundations of our success as a school.

This includes the following key areas:

  • Attendance and Punctuality

We are very proud of our attendance record and wish to maintain this standard. Punctuality is an important part of self discipline and is essential to good time management. We expect all students to arrive to school/lessons on time and ready to learnMore information about absence/attendance can be found on our Absences web page.


  • Care and courtesy

A kind and caring community is at the heart of Tanbridge House School. We expect all students, staff and members of the school community to treat each other with care and respect. You can find out more about our previous Rights Respecting Schools Award, which formally recognised our ongoing commitment to care and courtesy, on our RRSA web page.


  • Uniform, Appearance and Equipment

Our students are ambassadors for Tanbridge House School and they are expected to adhere to our uniform and appearance guidelines. It is also vital that students turn up to school with the correct equipment each day. You can find a full uniform/equipment list on our Uniform web page.
