The classroom is at the heart of the school. Effective teaching and learning are dependent on good behaviour and a disciplined environment. The Academy seeks to ensure a consistent approach to establishing good classroom behaviour routines through implementation of ‘The Babington Way for Behaviour for Learning’.
‘The Babington Way for Behaviour for Learning’
For all lessons, we the students will:
Our teachers will:
At Babington we have a clear ‘Amber 1, Amber 2, Red’ system to manage student behaviour around the Academy. The system has been in place for a number of years and encourages students to manage their own behaviour. It is important that students accept responsibility for their actions and our behaviour management system helps students to do this. As a school we make sure that staff apply the system consistently.
The Academy aims to reward good behaviour by setting a points threshold every ½ term and every student maintaining that threshold will have the opportunity to go on the school trip for that ½ term or get a £5 ‘Love to shop’ voucher.
All students are expected to be sensible and work in harmony with all members of the Academy. They must also be good ambassadors for the school and understand that they are responsible for their actions.
In lessons when a student does not follow the expectations of behaviour then the following system will come into effect:
Amber 1 ‘A1’ First warning
Amber 2 ‘A2’ Final warning
Red ‘Red card’ Incident logged and 30 minute detention given
Behaviour data is collected and analysed regularly and where appropriate some students may need further support in modifying their behaviour and this maybe done through a number of initiatives like ‘Report Cards’, ‘Pastoral Support Plans’ etc.
The Academy is currently adopting a ‘Restorative Approach’ alongside the ‘A1, A2 Red’ behaviour management system. Restorative Approaches recognise that incidents harm everyone; this includes the wrong doer, the harmed and the wider community. A restorative approach intends to make ‘things’ right, with the wrong doer accepting responsibility for their actions, repairing the harm and finding a positive way forward for all parties concerned.
This will involve staff using a restorative approach when dealing with incidents. This may include de-escalation strategies, the use of restorative language (see below), corridor conferences (see below) and the use of a restorative circle in which the wrong doer, the harmed and the wider community gather in a circle to seek a resolution to a problem in which all parties have the opportunity to express how they feel and through effective communication find a positive way forward after the wrong doer accepts responsibility for their actions.
