  1. 1. JOHN KELLY GIRLS’ TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE BEHAVIOUR POLICY Date updated: November 2008 Review Date: November 2009 AIMS The Behaviour Policy applies to members of the College community, on and beyond the site, on their way to and from College, and whenever they are involved in an activity associated with the College, and during which they can be identified as members of the College Our aim is: • To establish a climate in which good behaviour is accepted as a normal feature of the day to day life of a successful College. • To encourage students to take responsibility for their own behaviour. • To create a secure and caring environment in which good behaviour enables effective teaching and learning to take place. • To ensure that there are good working relationships between everyone in the College and that everyone’s right to be treated with respect is upheld. • To be clear on expectations of good behaviour in and beyond the classroom. • To encourage good behaviour in the community in order to maintain the good reputation of the College. • To ensure that any behaviour detrimental to the above including, racism, sexism, bullying will be confronted. • To be consistent in rewarding good behaviour and challenging and censuring bad behaviour. LEGAL FRAMEWORK This policy statement has been developed in consultation with Governors, Staff and Students, and in recognition of statutory regulations. CONTENT The Behaviour for Learning policy outlines for the students the behaviour expected of them. The procedures that support the Behaviour for Learning are made clear to the students and are written in their Planners. They will be applied consistently and fairly and used to promote personal and collective responsibility. These procedures, Rewards, Merit System Guidelines, Sanctions and Detentions are available to parents/carers. Sanctions are necessary in response to inappropriate behaviour. Every attention will be given to match the sanctions with the misdemeanour, these may include: Daily report, detention, withdrawal from lessons, fixed term exclusion or permanent exclusion.
  2. 2. COLLEGE POLICIES AND PRACTICES The effectiveness of the Behaviour Policy is reliant on its interrelationship with other college practices: Teaching and learning The curriculum Progress attainment and assessment Personal development Partnerships with parents, carers and others within our sphere of influence and all other policies, including: Race Equal opportunities Attendance and punctuality Anti bullying Exclusions Safeguarding children Good behaviour helps to create and sustain a civilised environment in which all members of the College community can reach their full potential and the good name and reputation of the College can be maintained.

  3. 3. Appendix 1 RESPONSIBILITIES The Governing Body in consultation with the Principal, staff and parents/carers is responsible for the establishment and review of the College’s policy for the promotion of good behaviour. The Governing Body will ensure that there is no differential application of this policy on grounds of ethnicity, religion, culture, disability, class or gender: that it is communicated to students and is easily available to parents/carers. All staff are responsible for ensuring that the policy and associated procedures are implemented. Teachers also have responsibility for creating a good learning environment through the teaching and reinforcing of good behaviour and the consistent and fair application of the policy and procedures. Parents and carers share responsibility with the staff for the behaviour of their daughters in and around the College. They are encouraged to work in partnership with the College in maintaining high standards of behaviour. On joining the College, parents/carers, students and College representatives sign a Home/College contract. Students are expected to take responsibility for their own behaviour and will be made aware of the policy, particularly the Code of Conduct. Students also have a responsibility to report incidents of disruption, violence or bullying.
