Behaviour, Rewards and Exclusions

 

 

Behaviour

At Park View, we have high expecations of behaviour and a consistent approach to behaviour management. Our Behaviour Policy  sets out our approach to improving the engagement of  children and their progression to  ensure improved Learning and Teaching leading to the raising of standards.     

We use the following  positive behaviour strategies to reinforce our expectaions:

  •    recognise and highlight good behaviour as it occurs through the use of rewards
  •    make sure that all children are praised for behaving well
  •    be positive
  •    always listen to children
  •    building positive relationships and knowing the children well
  •    re-directing
  •    planned ignoring
  •    set personal standards of  behaviour and respect for other people
  •    criticise the action not the child, but praise both action and child
  •    display expectations clearly
  •    encourage children to be responsible for their own behaviour
  •    be consistent in our expectations with all children
  •    clarity on expectations when moving round school: 3 Ss (Silently, Smartly, Single file)
  •    praise good behaviour before criticising inappropriate behaviour
  •    give children jobs or responsibilities as appropriate
  •    value children’s ideas
  •    clear systems for gaining children’s attentions: ‘Gimme 5!’ (2 eyes looking, 2 ears listening, one quiet mouth)

 

Rewards

We use a range  positive praise and rewards to encourage good behaviour:

 

Please see below our Behaviour policy for more detail on our expectaions of behaviour and how we praise and reward pupils for following the school rules:

 

 We are proud of ourselves and our school

 

 We are productive in our learning

 

 We are positive with others

 

 

 

Fixed Term and Permanent Exclusions

 

Exclusion is seen as a last resort after all other attempts to modify behaviour have failed.  Exclusion serves several purposes, including:

 

   To ensure the safety and well- being of all staff and children.

   To maintain high standards of behaviour in school

Under exceptional circumstances, the Principal may issue a fixed term or permanent exclusion. It is also possible for the Principal to convert a fixed-term exclusion into a permanent exclusion, if the circumstances warrant this.  

If the Principal excludes a child, they will inform the parents immediately, giving reasons for the exclusion. Parents will be informed that they can appeal against the decision to the governing body.  The Principal will follow the LA guidelines and would inform the LA, and the EAB.

After an exclusion a reintegration meeting will take place with the pupil and parents, where a support plan will be agreed. We would expect to see an eradication of the problem behaviour at the point of the child returning to school.  If not, the Headteacher will consider permanently excluding the child.  Permanent exclusion is very rare and is for violence and behaviour which puts children and or staff at risk. The clerk to governors receives a copy of the exclusion letter and an official exclusion form is sent to the LA. The EAB will be informed annually of the number and types of exclusions.

Under exceptional circumstances, the Principal may issue a fixed term or permanent exclusion. It is also possible for the Principal to convert a fixed-term exclusion into a permanent exclusion, if the circumstances warrant this.
