EIC Behaviour Policy supports our ethos:
“...to provide opportunities for our students to discover, explore, and develop their talents in a friendly, and supportive atmosphere that encourages academic and personal achievement.”
“...to encourage students to develop self-discipline and self-confidence and also to consider the needs of other people.!”
EIC Code of Conduct
The cornerstone of our policy is the EIC Code of Conduct. The key points in the Code of Conduct: Be a good role model, Show Consideration and Aim High should guide our interactions with students.
The Code of Conduct will be given a high profile throughout the secondary school, specifically in the following ways:
Expectations in the secondary school are significantly different from expectations in the primary school. Year 7 students need a great deal of support to develop and maintain good behaviour and personal organisation skills which will stand them in good stead throughout their school life and beyond. Our single campus facilitates such support.
To this end the following strategies will be used:
It is important that new staff understand and implement EIC policy. Attention will be drawn to this in INSET week and opportunities to dis-cuss this will be made available in department and section meetings.
While EIC policy aims to bring about good behaviour by education, encouragement and positive relationships between teachers and students, there will be times when sanctions are needed to ensure that students understand that poor behaviour has consequences and that we will not tolerate any behaviour which disrupts the learning of others. Sanctions should be used following these guidelines:
We believe that students respond to praise. Teachers should inform tutors and HOS about students’ achievements, including improve-ments in behaviour and organisation, so that we can all offer words of praise and encouragement in an informal way when possible.
See House Section
Departments may want to award their own certificates for outstanding achievement, progress or for participating in special events.
These are encouraged but should be restricted to six per year group, though there may be exceptions to this, notably PE.
Words of praise, house points, certificates, of celebrating our students’ achievements. Whenever possible certificates will be awarded in assemblies, whether whole-school, key stage or year group assemblies. Students should also be sent to senior staff for praise when possible, particularly when exceptional progress has been made.
All staff, Primary and Secondary, are asked to nominate students who have made outstanding progress, attained exceptionally high academic levels or made significant contributions to the life of the school. Nominations should be made by the end of each month; the Principal will then select between one and three for the award each month.
