Behaviour for Learning Policy Phase One Launch 6/1/2014 3.15- 4.30
Introduction At Wrotham School we aim to support, reward and challenge our students to develop the highest standards of behaviour so that all students can make excellent progress, feel safe and happy, and develop self-confidence and resilience. These are the qualities that will enable our students to be self-disciplined young people who are confident and at ease in a wide variety of situations, and to develop aspirations that will help drive their success.
Ethos Behaviour for Learning. Rewarding excellent behaviours. Shared community values. Clear and consistent implementation and consequences. Supported and understood by all Positive reinforcement. High Expectations.
Phase One The Respect Agenda. The Home School Agreement. Consequences and Sanctions. Rewards strategy.
Phase Two Bullying, gender discrimination, racism and homophobia. Consistent communication with parents. Standards- Uniform, conduct etc. Property, theft and vandalism. Restorative justice
Home School Agreement This document is the agreement between parents and the school on how we will support each-other. It makes the expectations of each party clear. All staff must read this carefully.
Home School Agreement We ask that every parent reads, understands and signs this agreement. This agreement confirms the strong commitment to doing what is best for the young people at Wrotham School as the result of a committed partnership between school and home. These are being sent out this week: -All CGL to chase nil returns -Refer to HOH to follow up persistent nil returns -HOH pass to SLT any refusal to sign.
"The young people now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority, they show disrespect to their elders.... They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and are tyrants over their teachers."
Respect Agenda The Respect Agenda is a simple set of standards by which every member of the school community is expected to apply in their school and work environment. These are social, moral and ethical standards that sit at the core of our beliefs and shared commitment. Students, staff and all members of the school community are asked to understand and uphold these standards in everything that they do.
Core expectations Respect- For others Respect- For environment Respect- For learning Respect- For safety
The Respect “Mantra” Responsible: Taking responsibility for your actions Enthusiastic: Giving 100% in everything you do- being positive Safe: ensuring your own safety and the safety of others in and outside of school Pro-active: Making the most out of every opportunity Equipped: Ready to learn, ready to succeed Considerate: Treating everyone fairly and showing good manners Trustworthy: Being honest and reliable
Implementation This can be used as a compass for expectations in everything we do. Every action or interaction can be judged against these standards. Everyone must understand them and apply them by referring to them as basic expectations.
Consequences and Sanctions The foundation for effective behaviour policy is consistency of implementation. When the rules are unclear or are applied unevenly the system will begin to fail. These changes aim to provide clarity for all.
