Behaviour for Learning
At Kingstone High School we take every opportunity to reward both students’ achievement and their good behaviour. These appropriate choices contribute to a positive ethos in the school thereby creating an environment for effective teaching and learning. Kingstone High School has a Behaviour System for the classroom. Form Tutors discuss and explain the expectations for Behaviour for Learning and ensure students understand them. All staff reinforce the expectations. A calm, orderly environment is needed for good behaviour and constructive work.
Rewards points are awarded throughout the year for a variety of positive reasons including effort and achievement inside or outside of the classroom, extra curricular activities, helpfulness to staff and promotion of school values. There are no restrictions on the rewards, they should be awarded on the basis that the students have met the criteria and their behaviour or attitude to learning deserves to be praised.
1. Class Teacher and Form Tutors Positive Behaviour = 1 point
2. Curriculum Lead and Pastoral Lead = 3 points
3. Senior Leader Positive Behaviour = 5 points
It is the students’ responsibility to ask the staff member awarding the points to sign their reward collection card. The Bronze Reward card has space for 50 signatures.
When it is completed, students take it to their Pastoral Leader. This generates a Bronze Award badge, which can be worn on their blazer or jumper.
Students will receive a new reward card to progress onto the Silver Award (100 rewards) and then Gold Award (150 rewards).
The cards will be retained and placed in the ‘reward box’ for the opportunity to win a prize at the end of the year and to qualify for attending events, e.g. Year 11 prom.
Sometimes students do behave inappropriately and we expect parental support in dealing with any breach of our Behaviour System. Children may be given a break time, lunchtime or after school detention. All detentions will be recorded on Go4Schools.
You will receive a phone call or email with notice of any after school detention. After school detentions are held every Wednesday. Letters will be sent home indicating the need to attend these detentions.
Please see our behaviour code below for full details of our Expectations for Behaviour and the Sanctions we put in place when our Expectations are not met.
