If students choose not to follow the Perfect Climate then it is exactly that… it is a choice they have made. Teachers will reference the Perfect Climate with every task they set so it is clear. It will be expected that if students are unsure they raise their hand and ask politely.
If a student has made the choice not to follow the Perfect Climate they will be given a C1. This is a warning to remind them that their behaviour has disturbed the learning of others and themselves. The student now has a chance to change their behaviour in order that they and the rest of the class can learn effectively.
If a student again makes the choice not to follow the Perfect Climate they will be given a C2. This is a final reminder that their choices are affecting the learning of others and themselves and if they continue to do this they will be removed from the lesson.
If after two opportunities to change their behaviour the student continues to make the choice to not follow the Perfect Climate they will then be given a C3. At this point they will be asked to leave the classroom and go to a ‘consequence room’ (another classroom). It is the student’s responsibility to go to their consequence room and they must arrive promptly.
When students have been issued a C3 they will receive a 30 minute detention which will be completed the day after the C3 was issued in the vast majority of circumstances. This is to ensure students clearly understand the reasons for their C3 detention and they can complete the consequence as quickly as possible and make a ‘fresh start’ as soon as possible. Parents will receive a text to inform them about the C3 detention. The text will state which teacher issued the C3 detention (where possible) and the reason for doing so. This is to help parents work effectively with the school to prevent the same behaviour from happening again. Our sims parent app also helps parents to monitor achievement points and behaviour instances on a daily basis (insert link).
An immediate C3 may be issued by a member of staff for any behaviours that are intentionally unsafe or abusive. This will be down to the professional judgement of the teacher.
C3 detentions take place on Monday to Friday from 3.05pm until 3.35pm except on a Wednesday when it will be between 2:15 pm until 2:45pm
All students are expected to turn up to their C3 detention without being reminded. We expect that ALL our students take responsibility for their actions. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure they turn up to their C3 detention on time the following day. A list is published each day for students to check. If students are unsure, they have until the end of lunch time on the day of their C3 detention to speak to a member of staff who will be happy to help them.
A C3 detention will not be changed or moved unless exceptional circumstances arise.
An after-school sporting fixture, an enrichment event, a GP doctor’s appointment or picking up siblings from a local primary school are not exceptional circumstances and students will be expected to complete their C3 detention. If students want to attend their sporting fixtures, enrichment activities and help out their families they must make the right choices when they are learning. Before a C3 is issued (unless it is intentionally unsafe or abusive behaviour) there will always be a choice and a chance to change their behaviour. If parents feel there are exceptional circumstances they can contact the school on the number provided on the text message and we will be happy to discuss this.
EVERY student has the choice and the chance to change their behaviour before a consequence is issued.
