16 Acuerdo Institucional de Convivencia Behaviour for Learning

17 Behaviour for Learning Process Staff views Focus group Student survey Behaviour conference Research Group work Draft Parent group Leadership team

18 Aims To create a climate where learning can flourish To protect basic rights of safety, learning and respect To develop student ownership of behaviour To build strong relationships and empathy To promote high self-esteem To ensure fairness of treatment for all to ensure the welfare of all To ensure a consistency of response to all behaviours

19 Philosophy Key features of the positive approach are: An emphasis on positive rather than negative statements Regular and sustained use of praise and rewards Teaching students the social skills they need to be successful Redirecting them towards success rather than highlighting their mistakes

20 Overview Rights Responsibilities Expectations Routines

21 Rights Everyone has the right to feel safe at school Students have the right to learn to the best of their ability Teachers have the right to teach Everyone has the right to be treated with dignity and respect

22 Responsibilities As students have the right to feel safe, they have the responsibility to behave in a manner so that others can feel the same way too As students have the right to learn to the best of their ability, they have the responsibility to behave in a way so others can learn As teachers have the right to teach, students have the responsibility to behave in a way that allows them to teach As students have the right to be treated with dignity and respect, students have the responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect

23 Expectations and Routines We value Respect for the schools identity and heritage and the uniform as a symbol of one´s pride in belonging We expect students To wear the uniform well and with pride and have neat appearance

24 Expectations and Routines We value Responsibility and enthusiasm for learning We expect students To have the correct books and equipment out ready to start the lesson promptly

25 Expectations and Routines We value Punctuality as a healthy habit to fully enjoy lessons We expect students To arrive on time to lessons and registration

26 Expectations and Routines We value Humility and empathy to show interest and respect for other opinions We expect students To listen when a teacher or peer is speaking and not call out

27 Expectations and Routines We value Positive attitude towards teachers requests We expect students To follow instructions from adults as soon as asked

28 Expectations and Routines We value Responsibility to care for property of all the community We expect students To respect and not damage any property or equipment

29 Expectations and Routines We value A climate where everyone in the school community has the right to be treated with dignity and respect We expect students To use appropriate and polite language, and courteously address all members of the community

30 Expectations and Routines We value Respect for the right to learn and to teach We expect students To keep on task and not disrupt the learning of others

31 Expectations and Routines We value Solidarity and respect towards peers and teachers who share the classroom and to those who use it after us We expect students To leave rooms tidy and in an orderly manner and during lessons, no eating or chewing gum - only water is allowed

32 Expectations and Routines We value Technology as an important tool that contributes to learning We expect students To only use cell phones or other electronic devices for educational purposes and with the teachers permission

33 Positive consequences (Praise system) Philosophy We know that the most important way to develop healthy values and self-esteem in young people is through verbal praise. A well done, warm smile or any form of congratulation is the most powerful form of praise that can be received.

34 Verbal praise For example: Punctuality Uniform Responsibili ty and enthusiasm for learning Verbal praise For example: Punctuality Uniform Responsibili ty and enthusiasm for learning Verbal praise 1 or 2 points awarded For example: Respect for learning Helping others with their learning Positive attitude towards learning Respect for other opinions Verbal praise 1 or 2 points awarded For example: Respect for learning Helping others with their learning Positive attitude towards learning Respect for other opinions home 20 points reached Continued and consistent Level 1 to 2 attitudes and behaviours For example: Contribute to improving the class climate Treating peers and teachers with respect and dignity home 20 points reached Continued and consistent Level 1 to 2 attitudes and behaviours For example: Contribute to improving the class climate Treating peers and teachers with respect and dignity Certificat es and Letter to parents 30 points reached Continued and consistent Level 1 to 3 attitudes and behaviours Certificat es and Letter to parents 30 points reached Continued and consistent Level 1 to 3 attitudes and behaviours Reward chosen by student 50 points + Parents invited in Continued and persistent Level 1 to 4 attitudes Positive consequences Practices

35 Negative consequences (Sanctions system) Philosophy The development of independence is important to us at St Andrews and throughout their years at school, students develop their autonomy by making their own decisions. Within this framework students exercise their freedom to choose, learning that their actions lead to consequences which can be positive or negative.

36 Verbal warning For example: Uniform Punctuality Eating/chewi ng gum Minor disruptions to learning: talking, out of seat, messing about Verbal warning For example: Uniform Punctuality Eating/chewi ng gum Minor disruptions to learning: talking, out of seat, messing about Verbal warning 1 or 2 points + Teacher action For example: Repetition 2/3 verbal warning in one lesson Inappropriate behaviour, such as: Lack of respect when a teacher/peer is speaking Disrupting the learning the others Damage to property/ equipment Verbal warning 1 or 2 points + Teacher action For example: Repetition 2/3 verbal warning in one lesson Inappropriate behaviour, such as: Lack of respect when a teacher/peer is speaking Disrupting the learning the others Damage to property/ equipment Serious warning 3 points Continued and persistent Level 1 to 2 incidents For example: Non academic use of cell phone or other electronic device Inappropriate use of language ++++ Serious warning 3 points Continued and persistent Level 1 to 2 incidents For example: Non academic use of cell phone or other electronic device Inappropriate use of language ++++ Conduct marks Meeting/Co mmunication with parents 10 points or continued and persistent Level 1 to 3 incidents For example: Intentional damage and disrespectfulne ss Intellectual dishonesty Bullying Theft Leaving school without permission Rudeness to staff Fighting Missing class Acta Meeting with parents (Level 5 may also include suspension, behaviour contracts) Continued or persistent level 1 to 4 incidents For example: Intentional and premeditated damage and disrespectfulnes s Consumption of tobacco, alcohol or drugs Discrimination Vandalism Negative Consequences Practices
