Behaviour & Safety

 At Daventry Hill School we believe that every student has the right to feel safe, secure and treated with dignity and respect.

We expect all members of the school community to play a part in fostering our core values:

Staff: to model expected behaviour and the Protective Behaviours themes and strategies.

Students: to take ownership and responsibility for their behaviour.

Parents: to uphold the relationship policy and Home-School agreement in partnership with the school.

Governors: to monitor and support the policy and evaluate its effectiveness.

All students are expected to:

  • Take responsibility for their own behaviour.
  • Reflect on the impact that their behaviour has on themselves and others.
  • Show care and consideration towards others and be tolerant and respectful of individual differences, beliefs and opinions.
  • Respect each other’s personal space.
  • Work hard and to the best of their ability.
  • Listen carefully whilst others are talking.
  • Be polite to others.
  • Look after their personal belongings.
  • Take care of the school environment.
  • Show safe behaviour in line with our core values.

All staff are expected to:

  • Provide praise and encouragement for students; offer challenges and highlight their achievements.
  • Have knowledge and understanding of individual students' support needs as set out in their Educational Health Care Plans.
  • Be clear and consistent when managing the behaviour of students whilst remaining non-confrontational.
  • Make explicit, in a constructive and positive way, the behaviour expected of students to help them identify and label safe and unsafe behaviours.
  • Follow the staff Code of Conduct.
  • Provide support and encouragement to each other in accordance with the policies and procedures of the school.
  • Undertake duties professionally.
