Positive Behaviour For Learning

In St. Mary’s, we expect pupils to demonstrate positive behaviour at all times. We recognise that there is a significant link between pupils’ behaviour, their attitude to learning and their progress/achievement. Parents/guardians have an important role to play in promoting positive behaviour and in supporting the school to ensure that pupils adhere to the school’s Code of Conduct.

Pupils’ behaviour is monitored on a regular basis by each Form Teacher, Head of Year and Progress and Learning Manager. Behaviour is reviewed daily, weekly, monthly, half-termly and termly.

Behaviour incidents and notable achievements are recorded on the School’s Information Management System (SIMS). Each behaviour incident and achievement in which pupils are involved will lead to behaviour points and achievement points being added to their Behaviour Profile. Pupils who have accumulated a certain number of behaviour points at the time of each review will receive an appropriate sanction and pupils who have accumulated a certain number of achievement points at the time of each review will receive an appropriate reward.
