Our Year Leader team is well supported by:
- our Reflection Room staff for students who receive C3s in lessons
- our Achieve Support Practitioner who oversees our Integrated Learning Zone and works with a range of students providing support and mentoring
- our Learning and Behaviour Mentor who works with a different group of students.
All staff are trained on Restorative Practice – this is a relationship based approach that seeks to understand why a student has misbehaved and work with the student to prevent negative behaviour patterns repeating. Sometimes, it indicates an unmet need or a social and emotional issue, which is why Achieve and Engage work closely together.
We do also use sanctions such as removal from lesson, late and site defiance detentions, after-school catch up learning time, time in our Integrated Learning Zone, and suspensions. However, we think sanctions alone do not change behaviour which is why as part of Restorative Practice we try to help the students to reflect and put things right, we seek to uncover underlying issues and address them.
Very occasionally we use Permanent Exclusions as a very last resort.
