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.
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.
- 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
