Behaviour

 

Here at Penns, we have high expectations of behaviour. A Penns Pupil is courteous, respectful and considerate.  We believe pupils learn most effectively within a framework of positive encouragement and motivation. By praising and rewarding positive behaviour, others will be encouraged to act similarly and positive behaviour will be reinforced.

Recognition of positive achievement may include:
Consistent verbal praise, from all staff

Stickers, badges and certificates
Informing parents of achievement e.g. via postcards, emails, letters
The award of merits for a wide range of academic, cultural and sporting achievement
The announcement of particularly prominent individual or team successes in school assemblies: this will
include the award of cups, trophies and prizes as appropriate
The award of certificates for progression and contribution to school life 

We provide our pupils with encouragement to behave well and act as positive role models to each other and the wider
community:
In sports and games, where they learn to accept victory and defeat with sportsmanship and good grace
In community service, where they learn to appreciate their own good fortune and the importance of
giving willing support to others in the community
In seeking to become Head Boy and Head Girl


Teachers play a key part in fostering good standards of behaviour:
Having high expectations of pupils in their behaviour and achievement in lessons
Praising pupils immediately when they see good behaviour, and state which element of behaviour has
warranted praise.
Encouraging the development of good relationships between adults/pupils at the school
Providing consistent classroom management of the pupils in lesson times
Modelling exemplary behaviour in their own conduct and manner towards the pupils wherever they
may come into contact with them
Asserting good values of conduct on the sports field
Discussing issues with pupils during one to one and class sessions and praising pupils through frequent
use of encouraging language and gestures, both in lessons and around the school, so that
positive behaviour is instantly recognised and positively rewarded.
Telling pupils clearly what is expected of them,
Applying rules in a way which is consistent and fair
Informing each other of pupil’s praise worthy actions, forwarding news of pupil achievement for
inclusion in our twitter feed, or half term newsletter
Providing a safe environment free from disruption, violence, bullying and any form of harassment.
Promoting desired behaviour and discipline
Promoting self-esteem- self-discipline, proper regard for authority and positive relationships, based on
mutual respect
Ensuring equality and fairness of treatment for all, irrespective of any differences
