CBEC Behaviour Strategy 

At the beginning of half term (February) we launched a new behaviour strategy for secondary students in response to the changing diversity of students’ needs as they move up the school. The strategy encourages and promotes positive behaviour and deters negative behaviour. The aim of the strategy is to improve the learning, achievement and enjoyment of school for all students.


Our simple and positive approach to behaviour management sets out high expectations for all students, at the same time providing high levels of support including individualised mentoring programmes to ensure students achieve these.


At the heart of the strategy are class routines which set standards of behaviour for learning within the classroom. These routines are published in each classroom and teaching area around the school and are frequently referred to. The routines are accompanied by a tariff of positive (credits) and negative consequences e.g. detentions and isolation. Our current reward system will continue as before with students being able to achieve 5 credits each lesson instead of 3 previously.


As an additional tool to support both staff and students we now have an alternative area we call THE ZONE. The Zone has a robust referral system and provides an isolation facility for students presenting high level behaviours. The Zone is staffed all day by a Higher Level Teaching Assistant and a member of the Senior Leadership Team. All behaviours are recorded and monitored.


If you require further information about the strategy or any other information regarding behaviour matters of safeguarding children please contact us and we will be pleased to help.
