Behaviour

    Our behaviour system is easy to understand and built around the idea of restorative justice.  We understand that sometimes in a large school things can go wrong.  Our principle is that if we get it wrong we put it right.  This means accepting the consequence and apologising for our behaviour, rebuilding relationships. 

    There are four main consequences: ten-minute detention, thirty-minute detention, inclusion and exclusion from school.  We would normally try to hold detentions on the same day or soon after.  If a student is placed in inclusion or excluded, we would expect parents to come in for a meeting with the headteacher.

    Each behaviour incidient is reviewed and sanctions are applied on a case by case basis.  Examples of behaviour types on each level of the system are shown below:
