Managing Pupil's Behaviour
Behaviour at George Salter is underpinned by our 3 Golden Rules. These are for each student to:
- By showing respect for everyone in the Academy.
- By showing respect for staff by following requests first time.
- By showing respect to other students’ right to learn.
- By showing respect for any equipment that is used.
- By showing respect for the environment.
- By taking responsibility for their own learning by bringing in the correct equipment each day and completing all tasks to the best of their ability.
- By taking responsibility for their own actions every time and not seeking to blame others.
- By taking responsibility for their own progress by acting upon teachers advice with positivity.
- By taking responsibility for their attendance and punctuality each day.
- By taking responsibility for their own behaviour by ensuring they are the best person they can be at all times and every day.
- By travelling around the Academy by walking on the left and holding doors open.
- By listening to the advice from teachers, asking when they are unsure and using specialist equipment appropriately.
- By reporting any concerns either to a member of staff or through the SHARP system.
- By using digital technology appropriately.
- By not putting themselves or others in danger through any inappropriate actions either on the way to or when going home from school
When a student makes a mistake and finds themselves needing to be sanctioned, the Academy applies a system of Restorative Justice (RJ).
- Restorative Justice is the process used by the Academy to address all behavioural issues and involves the staff member issuing the sanction and the student involved engaging in a discussion to identify the core of the issue and strategies to be used to address the issue.
- The aim is for every behavioural issue to be addressed through an RJ conversation, ensuring that there is no repeat of the initial behaviour and any damaged relationship between the teacher and student is repaired prior to the next lesson taking place.
