The behavior policy in my setting outlines how all staff are to set clear expectations, notice and praise positive behavior, The staff remind the children about the Golden Rules that everyone should follow which are:- “Be kind, friendly and polite Keep hands and feet to yourself Listen to people Look after our school and everything in it Work hard and sensibly” In my setting the code of conduct Is called the Home/Academy Agreement In this agreement it outlines what the parents/ careers to do in supporting the children with behavior, learning and the school.
It also outlines the academes role in supporting the children and parents/ careers for example informing parents/cares with behavior and keeping them updated of any concerns, It also outlines the children’s role about being courtesy, politeness and respect other children and staff. Also about looking after the school and keeping it tidy.
Good behavior Is rewarded by the children earning chance cards, this Is recorded on the classroom chart and then on Friday they are counted for assembly. N Monday morning there is a prize draw and the winning team is displayed near the office. The children are encouraged to earn 20 minutes golden time every week. The school also uses a traffic light chart where all the children start on green each day.
If a child behaves Inappropriate a first warning Is given If the Inappropriate behavior continues the child will then have to move their name to orange if the behavior stops then their name is then moved back to green but if it continues their name is then moved to red and then they will lose 2 minutes of Golden time.
Other sanctions for unwanted behavior are time out In another class, sent to a member of the dervish team, Head Teacher, Internal exclusion, temporary exclusion and permanent exclusion. The Anta-Bullying policy for my setting alms to provide a safe, caring and friendly environment for all pupils to allow them to learn effectively. To make sure they understand how to stay safe, and feel confident. As well as to seek support from school if they feel unsafe. The procedure dealing with bullying is to report the Incident and It will be Investigated Involving all parties.
Parents/Careers are informed as soon as possible, as well as the head teacher. Different responses In dealing with he incident are solution focused, restorative, circle of friends, individual work with 1 OFF The attendance policy objectives for my setting is to encourage the children to have full attendance and punctuality, it also records and monitor attendance and absenteeism and apply strategies if necessarily. It also works in partnership with parents, as well as rewarding good attendance, ensure a consistent approach thought out the school.
Poor punctuality procedures are monitored weekly by the SENSE. Children that are late are kept in at break times for as many minutes as they re late by the SENSE or Head teacher. Children who continue being late are referred to an Attendance and Punctuality Panel which is held half-termed by the SENSE, the School Attendance Advisor and attended by a governor as well as letters sent out to parents/careers of the impact of poor punctuality. Children who have attendance of 85% or less who do not have a good reason are also referred to the Attendance and Punctuality Panel.
It is important for staff to be consistent and fair when applying boundaries and rules for children and young people when dealing with behavior in accordance with the school polices and procedures. For example:- If a member of staff is not consistent with applying rules and boundaries there would be confusion and chaos in the setting and this would not help promote positive behavior in the children, but if the staff are consistent then the children in the setting will know what is expected of them in terms of behavior.
The benefits of all the staff being consistent and fairly when promoting positive behavior and dealing with unwanted behavior is that the children will know what is excepted behavior and they will look to the staff as role oodles. This will benefit the school as staff and children will be working together and school life will be positive and welcoming. Task 2 The benefits of encouraging and rewarding positive behavior is important because children and young people like being noticed and praised if they have done something good as this promotes confident, responsibility and self-esteem.
It is also important for those who tend to get in trouble to notice their positive behavior and for it to be rewarded. The benefits to the school would be that it will be a calm, safe ND welcoming environment for the children and the staff to work and learn, also the benefits to the staff would be they will have more time to help the children with their learning.
Task 3 The sort of behavior that should be referred is if the child is hurting themselves or others, destroying property, behaving in an unsafe way. The referral could be within the school which could be the SENSE this would be the first contact for behavior support and planning additional strategies for use within the classroom.
