This is our school’s latest Behaviour for Learning Policy, which is put in place to try to ensure that students behaviour is well managed and controlled.
The Radclyffe School is a Rights Respecting School and we acknowledge that it is the responsibility of all staff, students and community members to respect the rights of each other in and around school by adhering to The Five Respects.
The Radclyffe School Respect Charter outlines the responsibilities of everyone in school.
We believe that in order to enable effective learning and teaching to take place, good behaviour in all aspects of school life is necessary. We seek to create a safe, caring, learning environment in the school by:
All stakeholders have a responsibility to promote The Radclyffe School Respect Charter.
Associated SOPs will be consistently and fairly applied and promote the professional responsibility of every member of staff towards the whole community.
Refer to: Positive Behaviour Management; Exits; Sanctions.
A school ethos of encouragement is central to the promotion of good behaviour.
Rewards are one means of achieving this. They have a motivational role in helping students to realise that good behaviour is valued, and are clearly defined in The Respect Charter and the associated SOPs. Integral to the system of rewards is an emphasis on praise both informal and formal to individuals and groups.
Sanctions are needed when students do not adhere to The Five Respects.
A range of sanctions are listed in the associated SOPs.
The school will adhere to the Searching, Screening and Confiscation (2018) advice from DFE in relation to the searching of students and confiscation of items. Refer to related SOP
Appropriate training on all aspects of behaviour management is provided to support the implementation of this policy.
