‘Shaftesbury Says’

Shaftesbury High School is a community of pupils, staff, parents, carers and governors. We believe that…

  • We all have the same RIGHTS.
  • We show RESPECT to all the members of the School community.
  • We know there will always be someone to LISTEN, or talk to, if we feel upset.
  • We should be SAFE wherever we are, and whatever we do.
  • We are a HEALTHY school in all that we do.
  • We will always WORK to the best of our ability
