As a school, we are very proud of our pupils. Many have come to us following spells out of education, from out of county placements or placements within Alternative Provision. Added with the impact of the global pandemic, for many of our pupils the time since they last accessed full time education and were fully integrated into a school community was some time ago. We know that this, along with the associated behavioural needs of our pupils can make for some signifiant challenging behaviours, especially when first starting with us. The school must maintain discipline and good conduct in order secure an orderly learning environment in the interests of all the pupils. The school behaviour policy sets out our corporate statement of purpose, the boundaries of acceptable behaviour and the likely consequences of misbehaviour.
We believe that every member of the school community has a responsibility for behaviour and everyone has the right to feel valued and respected. All staff and students have an entitlement to achieve their maximum potential in a safe and secure environment where effective teaching and learning can take place. It is our belief that good behaviour needs to be consistently and positively encouraged and valued.
Here at Sir Bobby Robson School, we try to take a sensible and pragmatic approach to managing challenging behaviour. We also like to focus on celebrating positive behaviour and reinforce this via our in school rewards system. This system is built on the expectation that behaviour is of a standard where points are allocated for learning achievements and engagement, meaning our expectations are always high and focused on learning.
We are very aware that the needs of our pupils include behavioural challenges and we work hard to support every pupil to develop strategies to self regulate and self manage in moments of crisis or challenge. We pride ourselves on the relationships developed between. staff, pupils and families.
