Behaviour For Learning
Behaviour for learning is our whole school system for reducing disruption in the classroom and on corridors in order to improve the quality of learning and teaching and to create a safe and happy environment for all students, staff and any other person associated with the school.
From September, we will be using an exciting new system to keep you up to date with what is going on in school every day. Class Charts provides ‘live’, information of your child’s experience at Moorside High School, including:
- Achievements and rewards
- Latest announcements from school
- Notifications of behaviour consequences
- Your child’s attendance record
- Your child’s timetable and class teachers
A letter has been sent home which provides instructions as to how to download the free Class Charts app, including a unique parent pin formation. Please download the app/sign in to the website as soon as possible. There is a competition between forms in each year group, for the first form to get 100% parental sign up!!
If you need any help or support with the Class Charts App, please click here to download the Parent Guide.
All members of our community have the right to learn – anyone who disrupts the learning of others or behaves in a way which is disrespectful, stops other being safe, healthy or enjoying school can expect to receive a consequence.
Objectives of the behaviour for learning grades
- To support the quality of learning
- To reward students for good behaviour
- To ensure a consistent approach to discipline throughout the school that is clearly understood by staff, students and parents
- To help students learn that their behaviour has consequences
- To teach students how to behave appropriately, both in and outside school
- To reduce behaviour that has a negative effect on learning
- To develop personal responsibilities for acceptable behaviour
Students need to be made aware that they make a choice when deciding how to behave; positive behaviour will lead to rewards, negative behaviour will lead to sanctions. All students will receive a ‘Behaviour for Learning Grade’ in each lesson.
‘Students determine the consequences by their choice of action'
