Rewards and Consequences
The Behaviour 4 Learning system at Chetwynde School aims to:
- Reward all students for meeting and exceeding the high expectations that staff have of them;
- Ensure that students failing to meet agreed expectations face appropriate and consistent consequences.
- AutoRewards(4pts) will be awarded to each student present each lesson as the class register is taken.
- Additional Reward Points, carrying a value of 2-4pts each, may also be given for smaller numbers of students at the discretion of the class teacher for the following:
- Outstanding Effort – 4pts
- Excellent Work – 4pts
- Positive Contribution – 4pts
- The Golden Brownie Point – 4pts – awarded to any student who makes an explicit connection between their learning and current affairs/the wider world.
- Homework– 2pts.
Each week, Form Tutors will share and discuss information with students on their performance within the form, year group and school.
Appropriate rewards will be delivered on a regular basis and celebrated with students in assemblies. They may also be invited to Cakey Breaky or Hot Chocolate Friday.
Inappropriate conduct in the classroom will be recorded using the system of consequences as below:
- C1– a ‘rule and reminder’ is given to students; no further action.
- C2– a verbal warning; this carries a value of -2pts.
- C3– a final verbal warning; this carries a value of -4pts.
- C4– the student is removed to work in a ‘matrix’ classroom; -4pts plus detention.
In addition, students misbehaving around the school site during unstructured time may be issued with an immediate C4 (after school detention the following day)
Additional consequences to support good organisation:
- C2L – Late to the lesson; this carries a value of -2pts.
- C2E – Lack of equipment; this carries a value of -2pts.
- C2H- Lack of homework; this carries a value of -4pts
Bullying - a definition
There is no legal definition of bullying.
However, it’s usually defined as behaviour that is:
- repeated and sustained rather than a one-off incident of 'falling out'.
- intended to hurt someone either physically or emotionally
- often aimed at certain groups, for example, because of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation
It takes many forms and can include:
- physical assault
- making threats
- cyberbullying - bullying via mobile phone or online (for example email, social networks and instant messenger)
