Welcome to Copley!
We cannot wait to welcome you as part of our Copley Community. On this page, you will find everything you need to know about the school day, uniform, attendance, behaviour expectations and lunchtime!
We know that joining a new school at any point in your school career can be a nerve wracking experience for pupils so we hope this information will help you feel prepared for your time with us.

Behaviour and Discipline
All the members of our school community are assigned to a House which is represented by a colour (red, yellow, green, blue) and a scientist that has been awarded the Copley Medal (Hawking, Darwin, Hodgkin, Einstein).
Any House Points that pupils earn are counted collectively and each term, the House with the highest totals, enjoys a reward.
Throughout the year, we run events and competitions in our 'Houses' and we eat lunch in our 'Houses' too!
