Managing Behaviour

YOUR BEHAVIOUR PROFILE  - KNOW THE SCORE

Your behaviour is monitored on a regular basis by your Form Teacher, Head of Year and Head of Key Stage.  Behaviour is reviewed daily, weekly, monthly, half-termly and termly.  If you accumulate a certain number of Behaviour Points, you will receive an appropriate sanction.  It is important for you to understand how the school will respond if you accumulate a certain number of behaviour points.  This information is outlined for you in the Sanctions Framework below.   

BEHAVIOUR POINTS

Behaviour incidents are recorded on the School’s Information Management System (SIMS).  Each behaviour incident in which you are involved will lead to points being added to your Behaviour Profile.  The table below provides details of how many points are attached to a range of examples of behaviour incidents.

At the beginning of each new term, your Behaviour Points will be reset to zero. However, details of previous behaviour incidents will remain on the school system and this information will be available if a review of your overall Behaviour Profile is required.

In addition to an appropriate sanction, any behaviour which involves the misuse of an iPad will result in the removal of the iPad until the end of the day or the end of the next day.
