Behaviour

At Campion School we set high standards and possess high expectations.  The key aspect of our approach to behaviour and discipline is that we expect students to take responsibility for their own actions and to treat others as they would wish to be treated themselves.

Students have the right to be taught in a positive and safe environment where their efforts and achievements are recognised and rewarded.  Staff have the right to establish and maintain a safe and ordered learning environment.  They have the right to expect appropriate behaviour.  Staff and students have a responsibility to work within the agreed system of rules, rewards and consequences.

Basic classroom rules

These are displayed in every teaching area to reinforce our expectations of positive behaviour:

  • Always follow instructions the first time
  • Arrive on time, with the right equipment, ready to learn
  • Keep hands, feet and unkind comments to yourself
  • Listen carefully when others are speaking
  • Always do your best and allow others to do their best

I have the right to teach.  You have the right to learn.

Rewards

We believe that praise is more important in motivating students and more effective than blame .

The great majority of our students behave well and their work is recognised through our very positive rewards system:

  • Reward Points are awarded to students at the end of each lesson
  • Additional stamps for work ‘above and beyond’ the standard curriculum
  • Notes to form tutors and parents in planners
  • Student and form of the month
  • Praise cards sent home by Campion staff for effort and work of merit
  • A variety of prizes, vouchers and tickets
  • Trips out of school

If the classroom rules are broken, the students will face consequences for inappropriate or poor behaviour.

Sanctions

If a student has failed to follow a teacher’s initial instructions then:
 
1st Warning
A verbal warning will be given to the student. Staff to write ‘W’ in planner to show a warning was issued. Failure to hand over their planner will result in an Incident Slip.
 
2nd Warning
The relevant number will be put in the student’s planner and a C10/C20 detention to be issued.
 
3rd Warning
The student will be removed from the room and taken to the Head of Faculty or Key Stage Manager, using the ’on-call’ system as appropriate.  The student may be taken to the isolation room if necessary.
 
A C30 detention will be set if a student fails to attend either a C10 or C20 or if a member of staff deems the incident serious enough. A C60 after school detention will be issued for more serious incidents or where a student fails to attend a C30.
 

Remember

  • You always have the choice to return to work.
  • You are responsible for your behaviour.
  • All Incident Slips are recorded on the school database.

Incidents of extreme behaviour can still result in a fixed-term exclusion as an immediate sanction.

Alternative sanctions include

  • One or more days in the school’s seclusion room, Refocus, with alternate school hours and no contact with other student
  • Alternative provision
  • Permanent exclusion
