Behaviour Management

We believe that in order to enable effective teaching and learning to take place, good behaviour, in a safe and secure environment, is necessary in all aspects of school life and that these standards of behaviour are clearly understood and valued by all members of the school community.  Such a community will have consideration and respect for individuals and property and will share values which are just, fair and humane and enable all pupils to develop a sense of responsibility for their own behaviour and towards others and the community.  Furthermore, we acknowledge that society expects good behaviour as an important outcome of the educational process.

We will seek to create a caring, learning environment in the school by:

  • promoting good behaviour
  • promoting self-esteem, self-discipline, proper regard for authority and positive relationships based on mutual respect
  • ensuring fairness of treatment for all
  • encouraging consistency of response to both positive and negative behaviour
  • promoting early intervention
  • providing a safe environment free from disruption, violence, bullying and any form of harassment
  • encouraging a positive relationship with parents and carers to develop a shared approach, involving them in the implementation of the school’s policy and associated procedures
  • promoting self-esteem, self-discipline, proper regard for authority and positive relationships based on mutual respect, with adults at the school showing students unconditional positive regard.

The school will start and continue with a behaviour policy that has a philosophy of rewarding positive behaviour. This positive behaviour will be consistently reinforced and the staff will model appropriate behaviour in their interactions with each other and with the pupils. The school will teach aspects of the citizenship, curriculum, where pupils are learning the skills of self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation and empathy as well as social skills. Assemblies will celebrate these skills. Pupils will be provided with consistent positive encouragement and specific recognition when they demonstrate positive behaviour. The use of Tutor Time in the morning five days a week in addition to time spent delivering citizenship will reinforce opportunities to practice skills needed to develop positive relationships. Through the citizenship curriculum the fundamental rights of all those in school will also be reinforced. Teachers and other adults will adopt a positive and empathetic manner when responding to pupils and to each other. Rewards will be given consistently, with at least five times as many rewards given out each week when compared to sanctions.

Chiltern Academy will work in partnership with parents in all aspects of their child’s learning. Form teachers will offer support to parents and parents and will always be involved when their child is at School Action, School Action Plus of the SEN Code of Practice or has a statement of Special Educational Needs. The school will give high priority to clear internal communication and to a positive partnership with parents/carers since these are crucial in promoting and maintaining high standards of behaviour. Where the behaviour of a pupil is giving cause for concern it is important that all those working with that pupil in school are aware of those concerns, and of the steps, which are being taken in response. The key person in this process is the form tutor who has the initial responsibility for the pupil’s welfare.
