Behaviour and Discipline

Bishop Heber High School enjoys a reputation for ‘excellent discipline’. The rationale behind our ‘Behaviour and Discipline Policy’ is that:

  • Learning and Teaching is the raison d’être of our School and effective teaching and learning can only happen in a disciplined environment
  • We aim to encourage an open and questioning educational ethos; this does not conflict with the need for order and respect for authority
  • In preparing young people for adult life, we need to help them to understand the role of the self-disciplined individual within an ordered society
  • The performance of the high School in this respect will have a big impact on the culture, expectations and quality of life of the whole community

A copy of the full Policy is available online at www.bishopheber.cheshire.sch.uk/Parents/Policies as a read-only copy in the School Library or as a printed from the Clerk to the Governors, Miss J Ashley, jashley@bishopheber.chesire.sch.uk

Bike Racks

Students are encouraged to use bicycles to travel to School, when safe and practical to do so, and the bike rack is located to the right-hand side of the Main School Hall. However, it must be noted that the School cannot take responsibility for or accept liability for any vehicles or bicycles left on the premises.

Bishop Heber - Who was he?

Reginald Heber was born in Malpas on 21st April 1783. His father was Rector of Malpas and Hodnet, in Shropshire, and his early life in Malpas was steeped in religion. A recent biography of Bishop Heber written by Derrick Hughes described a man of devout faith, strong personality and great humanity. He was educated at Brasenose College, Oxford, and later elected as a Fellow of All Souls College. He travelled widely in Europe before accepting the family living as rector of Hodnet in Shropshire. In 1822 he was appointed to be the second Bishop of Calcutta and he departed England for the last time. Once in India he was tireless in despatching his duties to his enormous diocese. He journeyed to parts of the continent unknown to other colonials and acquainted himself with the Indian people and their culture. When he died in 1826 it was essentially from overwork. His biographer portrays him as a man ahead of his time – full of vision, integrity and compassion. As a School we can be proud of the example set by Bishop Heber. In his final sermon to his parishioners in England he exclaimed: “According to the gospels there are only two kinds of human beings; those we love and those we ought to love”.

Bullying

Bishop Heber High School is totally committed to raising student awareness about the issue of bullying through regular Assemblies, Theme for the Week and PSHCE. As stated in our Anti-Bullying Policy……”bullying is seen as physical or verbal abuse to another, which takes place on a number of occasions. It may involve bullying from one person or a few. In some instances an individual may target these behaviours at no particular individual, but randomly seek to promote their own status through anti-social acts”….. Students are actively encouraged to come forward and speak to a member of staff if they are being bullied so that the issue can be dealt with fairly, firmly and quickly. This could be their Form Tutor, Year Leader, Student Services or someone from the Main School Office. As the winning logo in our Anti-Bullying T-Shirt Design Competition states “DON’T JUST STAND THERE……TELL SOMEONE!”
