Business Dress

All students will be expected to wear the appropriate business dress and name badge when training at The Academy Grimsby. This business dress will be appropriate to the area the student will be training in. All students will be supplied with a name badge that must be worn at all times when on campus.

Behaviour and Exclusions

The aim of the Behaviour Policy for learning at The Academy Grimsby is to ensure every learner fulfils their potential. The Behaviour Policy at the Academy is a statement of good practice which allows all students to learn and teaching staff to teach.

Safeguarding

The Academy Grimsby recognises that it has a statutory and moral duty towards safeguarding the welfare of its students – they should feel safe throughout their time with us and will be supported if any concerns are raised. We have a dedicated Safeguarding Team, who are available to talk to if students have any concerns, are unhappy, or even if they are worried about the welfare of a friend or fellow student.

For any activities or lessons completed on the Grimsby Institute site, students will be bussed across with a member of TAG staff. Students can talk to one of the team about any concerns they may have. Our Safeguarding Team are here to help and can be approached easily.

We’re #lovinTAG – But don’t just take our word for it…
