Encouraging Positive Behaviour
Positive social and learning behaviour is encouraged through:
- Visible behaviour procedures and policy with a clear chain of command
- Consistent approach where all staff and associates operate to the same standards when dealing with issues
- Good Practice in classroom management and teaching, with high teacher-student ratios
- Good behaviour management and expectations between sessions
- Pastoral support so that every student has a member of staff to support them with their learning or personal problems
- High intensity monitoring that enables identification of trouble ‘hotspots’ and effective strategies, and that also builds student and carer awareness and commitment
- Individual Learning Plans incorporating goals that are specific, measurable, meaningful, achievable, realistic and time-bound with high expectations of students learning and behaviour
- An education package based on subjects and activities that the students are interested in. A clear progression through their learning with reward and acknowledgements that relates to their behavioural and learning achievements
- Positive family contacts through a variety of formal and informal means
- Positive role modelling across the whole team combined with active teaching strategies for overcoming difficulties
- Personal Development where the class works as a whole and individually to understand and encourage positive behaviour
- Empowerment through participation in decision making
