Behaviour for Learning

Christ’s Behaviour for Learning policy and procedures are based around the work of Paul Dix (founder and director of Pivotal Education).

"In behaviour management, culture eats strategy for breakfast."

 

 

Christ’s has been very successfully following this approach since September 2015. We are proud to be a Regional Hub School for Pivotal and to have achieved their Gold Award in recognition of our work in this area.

The approach entwines positively with our Christian values of Love, Justice, Peace and incorporates the following elements:

  • Consistent, calm staff across the school who focus on building positive relationships with young people
  • A sharp focus on praise; recognising students for praise publicly and often, whilst administering sanctions when necessary in private
  • Relentless routines so that students are quite clear about expectations. There are just 3 rules at Christ’s and these are for our students to be ‘Ready, Respectful, Safe’.
  • Restorative conversations to rebuild relationships and to moderate and raise awareness of acceptable behaviours which enable students to learn and thrive.

We ask all staff to read Paul’s book.
