Behaviour for Learning at Shoeburyness
At Shoeburyness High School our drive is to enable all pupils to achieve their very best in a pleasant and purposeful learning environment. All our staff follow our established behaviour management procedures and everyone in our community fully understand our high expectations. We have 6 school rules:
1. No inappropriate language or anti-social behaviour
2. Walk quietly in the corridors and keep our school tidy
3. Follow instructions
4. Be properly equipped and follow the school’s dress code
5. Be positive and work together
6. No mobile ‘phone or personal entertainment systems
If students do not fully engage with their learning, departments within the school have an ‘on call’ system whereby a member of staff will supervise a student working on their own. Departments also run departmental detentions and teachers will contact home if there are concerns about behaviour.
If we have ongoing concerns about the behaviour of a student we may decide to internally exclude within our internal exclusion room. Additionally, Year Managers may place pupils on behaviour report. In extreme and rare cases students could be excluded from school on a fixed term or permanent basis.
We celebrate student achievements in our ACE assemblies and always look to reward students for a positive and passionate approach to learning.
Our clear systems and high expectations have had a positive impact on the progress and outcomes for our students over the last 10 years.
Ofsted have rated behaviour and safety as good with outstanding features in our 2013 inspection, stating: “Behaviour in lessons is consistently good. The school has a clear approach to managing behaviour and students say they understand its expectations of them,” and, “Students say they are happy and feel valued as individuals.”
