Behaviour

Shibden HeadWe have high expectations about behaviour and conduct in our academy. We are committed to promoting good behaviour, which underpins a climate of safety. We believe that good behaviour needs to be carefully developed throughout the academy.

We believe that young people learn best when they are clear about what is expected of them and are clear about what they are supposed to do. Having a consistent system throughout the academy means that children are fully aware of what is expected.

The Behaviour Policy operates for all children throughout the academy. It is based on the children observing a few simple rules which were decided on by children, staff, parents and governors and intended to help each child develop a sense of responsibility for his/her actions and a caring and considerate attitude towards other people.

Good behaviour is recognised and rewarded in a number of ways. If your child brings home stickers, badges or certificates as a result of their good behaviour, please praise their efforts and discuss how the reward has been ‘earned’.

By identifying, praising and rewarding positive aspects of behaviour, we minimise instances of poor behaviour. There is a scale of sanctions for unacceptable behaviour. The first is always a warning and explanation to the child. Parents will always be informed and consulted if a child regularly misbehaves.

Look under Our Academy/Policies for the Behaviour Policy and Anti-Bullying Policy.  These policies are reviewed annually.
