  9. 9. What am I like as Teacher? My Expectations Sixth Form Expectations: You need to provide your own paper, stationery and folder! It is important that you bring these with you to every lesson and keep your folder in order. Any one who doesn’t bring the correct equipment to lessons (Folder, Paper, Textbook, Pen) will be asked to leave the lesson and catch up in their own time. Mobile Phones: If I see them out in class you get 1 warning. After 1 warning they will be confiscated and you’ll be given a phone forfeit! Turn up to all lessons, work hard, contribute to the lessons, complete independent work and we’ll be able to get you through the course. But in order to do that we need to work cooperatively as a team!  Read the student code of conduct and sign to say you have read it. Charlotte Russell Bilton School
