Through caring concern and support for others all things are possible
Our behaviour management procedures place emphasis on restorative practices to enable students to take responsibility for the results of their behaviour. The fundamental hypothesis of restorative practices is simple: that human beings are happier, more productive and more likely to make positive changes in their behaviour when those in positions of authority do things with them, rather than to them or for them.
Our Deans, Guidance and Senior Management Teams are trained in restorative practices and manage mediation work to ensure students are accountable for their behaviour, whilst working to ensure a safe and rewarding learning environment. Workshops and further training opportunities are provided to staff throughout the year.
