Behaviour and anti-bullying policies are clear and well understood. Pupils know who to go to if they have a concern and staff support them well. Estyn 2013
High standards of behaviour in an orderly community are the foundations upon which a first-rate education is built. We believe that good discipline in the classroom results from carefully prepared lessons designed to engage each pupil’s interest and curiosity and to challenge their intellect. We expect pupils to behave in an orderly manner, showing respect for each other and for our staff, as well as respect for our school buildings and the equipment they use.
Good standards of behaviour are promoted through the positive role models provided by other pupils and the staff of the school. Praise and recognition for positive behaviour are the most effective ways of promoting high standards. Assemblies are used to recognise the success of individuals, so that the whole school can be proud of pupils’ academic and extra-curricular achievements.
Achievement certificates presented at assemblies and letters of praise to parents are some of the many ways used to reinforce positive behaviour. Our chosen team of sixth form prefects, together with the Head Boy, Head Girl and their deputies, help our staff at break times and lunch times to look after the welfare and safety of younger pupils as they move around the school.
There are occasions when our expectations are not met and our clear policy ensures that parents are kept informed of such occasions. Consequences of poor behaviour include detentions at lunch times and after school or, on rare occasions, pupils may be excluded from school.
