“Clear and effective behaviour and attendance policies with clearly defined consequences that are applied consistently and fairly by all staff.”
Our school places learning at the heart of all we do. We have many layers of support for our students to ensure they 'get it right' in classrooms and within our school. This starts every morning with our Mentors who will ensure school policies regarding uniform, equipment and expectations are followed. They are the first point of contact along with our student support team should there by any issues. We also have our team of Achievement Directors who head up our Year groups and have an overview of progress and of our students journey with us. Our final layer is our Senior Leadership Team, one of our Assistant Principals also support our ADs should there be any escalating or entrenched issues. Our Achievement Directors can be contacted here.
Below is a brief overview of our sanction system, it is designed to give our students directed warnings and choices to change their behaviours at every turn. However, we do not tolerate any disruption in our classrooms and if the wrong choices our made by students despite staff warnings our Behaviour for Learning stepped sanctions will be followed clearly and consistently.
A clarification of low level disruption is below:
Calling out without permission
Being late to lessons or slow to start work or follow instructions
Showing a lack of respect for each other and staff
Not bringing the right equipment
Chatting when they are supposed to be working or listening to the teacher
Using mobile devices inappropriately in lessons
Wasting time, through teachers having to deal with inappropriate uniform
Packing up well before the end of the lesson
