Our behaviour policy can be found in the policies section of the school website. School has a behaviour system which is used consistently in all classrooms. Pupils are rewarded for good behaviour daily using the, “Good to stay Green” card system. Each daily reward is then transferred into bronze, silver and gold certificates each term. If a child receives a gold certificate a letter, from the headteacher, is sent to parents to commend them on this.
Sanctions are also inbuilt into the reward system. So for minor incidents, children may be given a verbal warning, an orange card, another verbal warning, a red card.
For more serious incidents, a penalty point may be given, although this is rare. If a child receives three penalty points in a term, they will miss the end of term treat and receive a detention. Parents are informed of serious incidents, which require penalty points. Each pupil starts with no sanctions at the beginning of each term. There is a very low percentage of pupils who miss the end of term treat.
Where possible, if additional support is required around behaviour, working with parents through a home-school behaviour book is used to change behaviours. There are some pupils who benefit from additional support to moderate their behaviours through the EWEL service or when all school support has been exhausted through alternative provision.
We are an inclusive school and work hard to support pupils who need additional support with their behaviour. Exclusions only take place as a last resort and for serious incidents. Exclusions are reported to governors each term.
