Behaviour for Learning
Students and teachers are fully aware of the college’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:
“The College has made considerable impact on improving behaviour through initiatives and strategies used to promote high standards and expectations across the College.”
At Rooks Heath College our Behaviour for Learning Policy involves all members of the college 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 result in detention, seclusions or exclusions. There is a corresponding set of Rewards and teachers take every opportunity to reward success.
