Behaviour for Learning
Students and teachers are fully aware of the School’s Behaviour for Learning Policy and there is a clear system of rewards and sanctions. Respect for others forms the basis on which we expect students to behave. This is reflected in the Inspectors’ statement that:
"Leaders are firm about their expectations for good behaviour and take appropriate actions when it is needed, in the pupils’ interests."
At Rooks Heath School our Behaviour for Learning Policy involves all members of the School community: students, staff, parents/carers and governors. If students are to achieve their best, they must be free to learn in a stimulating, encouraging, supportive, consistent and caring environment. Above all, it means students accepting responsibility for their own actions and ensuring that they do not adversely affect the learning of others. For students who choose inappropriate behaviour, there is an escalating series of consequences which may ultimately result in exclusions from the School. There is a corresponding set of Rewards and teachers take every opportunity to reward success. All rewards are linked to one of our five values of Teamwork, Resilience, Achievement, Creativity and Kindness.
