Expectations and Behaviour Policy
We are a no shouting academy. This is because shouting is a loss of emotional control. We don’t shout at each other, ever.
Can you think of 3 reasons (be sure to expand on the reason with 'because, so, therefore) why we have chosen to be a no 'shouting academy?
Can you also draw a logo which captures our 'no shouting' rule?
Once you have drawn it, be sure to share it with us by emailing it (if you can) to email@example.com That is Miss Afzal's email address. I don’t want to say too much because we encourage integrity but there may be a surprise for those who submit these logos.
Getting it right here at Ark St Alban’s Academy is easy. We have three simple expectations of every member of our academy – when we all get it right it means there is no learning time lost.
- Arrive on time, properly equipped.
- Do your homework and hand it in on time.
- Do as your teacher asks, without questioning.
Every lesson you begin with a lesson score of a “3”. This means all expectations have been met.
Student misbehaves in lesson, a warning is issued.
Student is removed to the Isolation Unit and remains there until a family member collects them after 5pm.
Friday Detention - 2 Hours
Saturday Detention - 9am until 12pm in full school uniform
A student has two consecutive Friday detentions in a half term.
There are some things you will get put straight into detention for:
- Chewing gum
- Having your top button undone
- Being late to the academy or a lesson
- Not completing Independent Practice
- Swearing in your conversations with each other
- Having a mobile out at any time (you have to hand this in on arrival to the academy)
- Arguing with a teacher about a warning
- Eating or drinking in the corridor/classrooms/library
- Poor corridor behaviour
And if you do something really wrong…
Certain behaviours for e.g. swearing, bullying, truanting, vandalism, cheating, verbal aggression , will result in serious consequences.
Depending on the nature of the behaviour this may include:
- 2 hour Friday detention
- 3 hour Saturday detention
- Meeting with a member of the senior leadership team and parent
- Pastoral report
- Internal exclusion
The most serious of offences could result in permanent exclusion.
