Good behaviour is central to ensuring every child and young person makes outstanding progress and gets the chances in life they deserve.

We manage behaviour exceptionally well to provide a calm, orderly, safe and supportive environment in which children and young people want to attend and can learn and thrive.

Being taught how to behave well and build positive relationships is vital for children to succeed personally and for them to successfully navigate the community they live in.

We use a range of actions and practices to achieve this, creating a positive culture. These include, but are not limited to: the curriculum, student assessment and feedback, assemblies, student engagement/pupil voice, co-curricular enrichment, pastoral support and guidance, individualised adjustments and inclusion, parental engagement and appropriate multi-agency working for those students with the most challenging needs.

The behaviour and relationships policy ensures that we maintain the highest expectations of all pupils, ensuring that all pupils are supported to meet these standards and expectations. We never apologise for having high standards in all that we do, and this includes pupil behaviour.

To ensure consistent application of our expectations, we ask students to meet the following learning expectations:

  • Be prepared – ready to learn.
  • Be exemplary in the way I present myself – manners, pride and kindness.
  • Be respectful – to others, to the environment and to myself.

Be prepared - ready to learn

  • I have the right equipment.
  • I get to my lesson on time and settle quickly and quietly so that no learning time is wasted.
  • I respond promptly to instructions when asked the first time.
  • I do my homework well.

Be exemplary in the way I present myself - manners, pride and kindness

  • I show good manners and always be polite in the way I interact with others.
  • I take pride in the presentation of my work and in my uniform.
  • I never shout out.

Be respectful – to others, to the environment and to myself.

  • I don’t drop litter anywhere.
  • I listen and respect the views of others, including those that are different to my own.
  • I never make anyone feel unsafe (no foul language, no physical contact).

Our students understand that there are always consequences associated with good and poor behaviour. With this in mind, we have a simple and consistently enforced system of rewards and sanctions to support high standards of behaviour. This encourages hard work, rewards good behaviour and promotes success.
