Behaviour and Rewards
Our Behaviour and Rewards System provides positive consequences for good behaviour and achievement.
The Stanborough Code
We expect high standards of behaviour from all students. The Stanborough Code sets out the principles on which behaviour and discipline are based. The Behaviour and Rewards Ladder shows how rewards and consequences are applied.
You can earn Bronze Awards (five reward points) for good effort, achievement, contribution to lessons and presentation. You can also earn Silver Awards (worth ten reward points) for outstanding effort, achievement, citizenship and contribution to house events. Gold Awards (worth 30 reward points) are for special recognition for academic achievement or contribution to the school community. All reward points go towards the end of year house trophy. We celebrate student achievement throughout the year and at the end of each term in our End of Term Assemblies. In the assembly, students who achieved the highest reward points in each year group are recognised, as well as those with good behaviour. Each week students are nominated to receive the Headteacher’s commendation for contribution to the school community, academic excellence, excellent or improved work ethic etc.
We have high expectations for behaviour and believe that all students should learn in a calm and focused environment. Students who do not meet these expectations may be given a detention on a subsequent day (Level 3). There will be 24 hours written notice of this via email. In more serious cases, where a Headteacher’s detention (Level 4) is imposed, parents are informed by email. Parents may also receive a phone call from a Year Leader or senior member of staff for more serious behaviour. Students who are late for school will also be issued with a lunchtime detention on the day they are late (level 2). Students who are late to lesson also receive a Level 2. If students receive three Level 2s they will be issued with a detention. This escalates if students continue to be late to school and late to lessons.
In addition, we may set a Saturday detention (Level 5) for persistent inappropriate behaviour or more serious incidents. A Saturday detention will be set if a student fails to attend a Headteacher’s detention. If an incident is more serious students may be withdrawn from their normal school lessons and will work in the Moving On Room under supervision (Level 6).
In the most serious cases, students may be excluded from school. Agreed procedures will be followed.
Poor work or behaviour may lead to a student being placed on report. This would mean carrying a report card for the day and each lesson is reported on. The report card is seen by the tutor, Year Leader or other senior members of staff at the end of the day and parents are asked to sign the report.
