1 THE WORDSLEY SCHOOL BUSINESS & ENTERPRISE AND MUSIC COLLEGE Behaviour Policy October 2015 Review Date: October 2017

2 1. Introduction We strive to ensure that every single pupil enjoys attending school and contributes to a positive learning ethos. As a school, we encourage good behaviour through a combination of high expectations, a clear policy and an ethos which fosters mutual respect between pupils and between staff and pupils. All members of the school community have a responsibility to enhance our school further through building upon our school philosophy. The Wordsley School Philosophy Everyone has the right to learn. We educate our young people to the highest standard to ensure their potential is realised. Everyone shows respect for others. We value all pupils equally and constantly promote a sense of purpose, self-confidence and school values. Everyone takes responsibility for their actions. We expect hard work and high standards of behaviour, attendance, punctuality and appearance. As a school we have in place a vast range of rewards to reinforce and celebrate good behaviour, along with clear sanctions for those who do not comply with the school s high expectations. These will be proportionate and fair and may vary according to the age of the pupil and any other appropriate special circumstances which affect the pupil. 2. Roles and Responsibilities Responsibilities of pupils: To attend school regularly and punctually. To maintain a high standard of appearance complying with the uniform and equipment details (see pupil planner/school handbook (SHB).

To provide a stimulating environment, engaging pupils in varied and challenging work (see Effective Lessons, SHB). To take responsibility for the maintenance of discipline by using positive behaviour management strategies. To encourage and reward good behaviour. To carry out their staff duties consistently.. To promote pupils spiritual, moral, social and cultural developments to enable pupils to thrive in a highly supportive and highly cohesive learning community.

To create a positive, calm, disciplined start to the day. To monitor pupil s academic progress and attendance. To meet regularly with parents/carers for Review and Guidance.

4 Responsibilities of the Senior Leadership Team: Support, manage and lead in order to maximise achievement of all pupils in a supportive and disciplined environment. To further develop on-line reporting of pupils behaviour to parents. To ensure that the School Behaviour Policy is implemented in full and reviewed periodically. 3. Rewards i. Merit Stars The Merit strategy is used to reward, and promote good effort and achievement immediately. At Key Stage 3 pupils collect and record stars on their personal card starting with Bronze, working through Silver, Gold and ultimately, Platinum. In Key Stage 4 pupils are awarded stars via right clicks on SIMs. Once the expected number of stars have been collected, pupils receive an appropriate badge and certificate in Assembly. ii. Attendance Awards Pupils are presented in Assembly with a Bronze Attendance badge for a full term attendance, a Silver badge for two terms full attendance and a Gold for three terms full attendance. iii. Subject Certificates Pupils will be awarded Subject Certificates/ Colours for outstanding work. iv. Subject Prize Winners Annually, staff nominate pupils in each subject for each year group, a pupil who has made outstanding progress or who has excelled over the past twelve months. Winners are awarded the prize at Presentation Evening. (Brierley Hill Civic Hall). v. Head of House & Headteacher s Commendation These are awarded to pupils for outstanding work or contribution to school life. vi. Phoenix Award This award is to recognise the achievement of pupils who have transformed themselves into well-motivated and focused young people over a sustained period of time. vii. House Points These are awarded for attending after school clubs and for volunteering at school events.

5 viii. Student of the Month Each month, Heads of House will present the award to a boy and a girl from their House who have demonstrated exceptional attitude and behaviour in all their subjects. ix. Leadership Award To achieve this award, pupils must ensure that they meet set criteria across a range of subjects. The completion of the criteria must be supported by a member of staff. Pupils keep a record in their personal planner. x. Literacy Award To achieve this award pupils must complete the required number of book or film reviews. xi. Accelerated Reader Award As part of the Accelerated readers Programme pupils are rewarded for reading books and demonstration the understanding of the text through an A R quiz. For all the awards, pupils receive a badge and a certificate, in addition, a letter is posted home to celebrate the pupil s success. 4. Sanctions We expect all pupils to adhere to our Code of Conduct (Appendix A). In addition, we will not accept any of the following behaviour: Disrupting the learning of others. Rude or inappropriate language. Acts of aggression or any kind of physical violence. Bullying or intimidation. Racist, sexist or homophobic comments. Vandalism, theft. Refusal to follow the instructions of a member of staff. Possession of cigarettes (or items relating to smoking), knives, alcohol, illegal drugs or firearms. Failure to comply fully with our E-Safety Policy. When poor unacceptable behaviour is identified, sanctions will be implemented consistently and fairly in line with the behaviour policy. We use a range of disciplinary measures, these include: Verbal reprimand. Additional work or repeating unsatisfactory work until it meets the required standard.

6 Loss of privileges e.g. not being able to attend or participate in non-uniform days, school trips, the school Prom or KS4 Consortium courses. Missing breaks/lunchtimes. Detentions. School-based community service such as picking up litter. Reports to monitor behaviour, uniform. Internal inclusion/ Isolation The Bridge. Meeting with parents. Managed Move to another school. Fixed term or permanent exclusion. 5. Detentions If a teacher wishes to detain a pupil for more than ten minutes at the end of the day, written notification will be given to parents 24 hours in advance, although there is no legal obligation to do so; Parental Consent is not required for detentions. If a pupil fails to attend a detention given by a member of staff they face being placed in a one hour Senior Leadership Team Detention. If the pupil is present and parents have not given a sound reason but failed to attend the SLT Detention, they will be placed in The Bridge the next day. 6. Low Level Disruption We will not accept any behaviour no matter how trivial from preventing other pupils from learning. There is a published procedure for the identification of LLD and resulting measures to address the issues with individuals. 7. The Bridge Persistently disruptive pupils will be placed in isolation (The Bridge) away from other pupils for a limited period. The Bridge is used when it is deemed to be in the best interest of the child, and other pupils. The school will make every effort to inform parents before their child is placed in The Bridge, however, parental consent is not required. Isolation will include break and lunchtime and may result in the pupil remaining in school beyond 3.00pm. While in The Bridge, pupils may receive additional support/mentoring to support a change in their behaviour. 8. Red Slip Pupils whose behaviour repeatedly fails to meet our expectations and have failed to respond positively to other support strategies, will be placed on the Red Slip. If one of these pupils disrupts the learning in a lesson they will be removed from the class to work under

7 supervision in The Bridge for the equivalent of one school day. Pupils remain in school until 4.00pm. Parents will be informed if their child is placed on the Red Slip. 9. Pupils Conduct Outside The School Gates Teachers have the power to discipline pupils for misbehaving outside of the school premises to such an extent as is reasonable Section 10 Education and Inspection Act In this school, teachers may discipline pupils for: Misbehaviour when the pupils is: i. Taking part in any school-organised or school-related activities. ii. Travelling to or from school. iii. Wearing school uniform. iv. In some other way identified as a pupil at the school. 10. Power to Use Reasonable Force Members of staff have the power to use reasonable force to prevent pupils committing an offence, injuring themselves or others, damaging property and to maintain good order and discipline in the classroom Confiscation of Inappropriate Items There are two sets of legal provisions which enable school staff to confiscate items from pupils: 1. The general power to discipline enables a member of staff to confiscate, retain or dispose of a pupil s property as a punishment, so long as it is reasonable in the circumstance The power to search without consent for prohibited items, as detailed in Section Additional Support For Pupils The school will endeavour to encourage pupils to meet our behaviour expectations through additional support strategies within school and with the help of external agencies. 13. Exclusion Good discipline is essential to ensure that all pupils can benefit from the opportunities provided in school. The Governing Body acknowledges the school s overriding objective is to provide a safe environment for the whole school, and recognises the need for exclusions as a

8 sanction. In such circumstances the governing body must balance the needs of the individual with the safety and welfare of the whole school. A pupil may be excluded for one or more fixed periods, or permanently. Permanent exclusion will only be used as a last resort in response to serious or persistent breaches of the School s Behaviour Policy and when allowing the pupil to remain in school would seriously harm the education or welfare of the pupil or others in the school Holiday Leave In order to comply with present legislation introduced by the Government, we will not grant holiday leave for any pupils unless there are exceptional circumstances. Parents who believe that the circumstances are exceptional may request an Exceptional Circumstances Absence Request Form which parents must complete and return to the Headteacher. The Headteacher will consider the request and inform the parents in writing of this decision. Should you take your child on holiday during term time without authorisation from the Headteacher, the Pupil Welfare Manager may consider a referral being made to the Education Investigation Service for them to advise you of the possible legal consequences (the Government intends to fine parents 60 to 120 dependent upon when the fine is paid). When considering a referral to the Education Investigation Service we will look at your child s attendance to date. For further information re absence please refer to the School Attendance Policy. 1. Behaviour and discipline in Schools. Advice for Headteachers and school staff, para 38 Department of Education. 2. Section 94 Education and Inspection Act Section 550ZA (3) Education Act Exclusion from Mainstream Schools/Academies and Pupil Referral Units in England.
