Academic Honesty Policy
Takapuna Grammar School is committed to academic honesty and will ensure that all students, teachers and parents are aware of what this means both in principle and in practice. Academic Honesty must be seen as a set of values that promote personal integrity and good practice in teaching and learning and assessment. Takapuna Grammar School seeks to produce learners who are principled – that is they act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness, justice and respect for themselves and others. They take responsibility for their own actions and the consequences that accompany them.

We expect that all students enrolled in the school will submit work that is authentic. Authentic work is based on the students’ individual and original ideas with the ideas and work of others fully acknowledged through referencing. Other people’s creations are their intellectual property and cannot be copied without permission – this includes art and music, discoveries and inventions, trademarks and slogans and even some words and phrases.
