The purpose of our Behaviour Policy is to ensure that all members of our community have knowledge of the behaviour system and follow it to bring about consistency of practice throughout the academy.
It also ensures that all students understand what constitutes acceptable and unacceptable behaviour and that every student understands their choices and the consequences of their decisions. The policy also outlines the rewards that helps make the system effective as we recognise that rewards play as vital a role in the process of ensuring outstanding behaviour. Our key purpose is to ensure the safety, wellbeing and success of all our students.
In order to ensure success for all, we have in place a range of interventions to support students, develop positive relationships and refocus on learning. Poor conduct has consequences for learning and achievement and, potentially, the safety and wellbeing of our community. High expectations of staff and students make a positive contribution in our aim of achieving the ‘Best in Everyone’.
Our policy is built around our core values of Ambition, Determination and Respect and is aimed at supporting our students to exhibit the values we look to develop in them, and to reflect when they have breached these values. In applying this policy, the academy takes into account its duties under the Equality Act 2010 regarding relevant characteristics protected by that act, notably disability. It also takes into account the needs of pupils with special educational needs in line with the SEND Code of Practice 2015. The academy will also have regard to its safeguarding policy where appropriate.
We understand that aspects of academy life may be even more challenging for some students with special educational needs. We will therefore look to make reasonable adjustments to this policy where necessary. Examples of reasonable adjustments include but are not limited to:
- Specific seating position in classroom
- Additional direction to remain focussed in lessons before being moved or removed
- Support from an additional adult in the classroom
Any reasonable adjustments will be shared with staff working with individual students.
