Behaviour

Principles

  • The Behaviour Policy is designed to promote good behaviour, self-discipline and respect
  • Good behaviour allows all pupils to learn; poor behaviour disrupts the perpetrator’s as well as others’ learning
  • Effective learning thrives on positive relationships
  • Restorative approaches are used promptly by all staff in order to encourage reflection and minimise escalation and recurrence
  • The expectations of good behaviour are underpinned by respect
  • Good behaviour is promoted by clear rules that are communicated, understood and upheld by everyone
  • Rewards and sanctions are consistently applied by all staff

Practice

How the Behaviour Policy works in practice is detailed in the following places:

  • Pupil Planner
  • Staff Handbook (including recording on SIMS)

The Policy is divided into four parts:

  1. Code of Conduct
  2. Rules for behaving outside of the classroom
  3. Rules for learning in the classroom
  4. Rewards & sanctions

The exclusion procedure is included within the Behaviour Policy and Bishop Luffa School follow the Department of Education's Guidance on Exclusions.
