Behaviour for Learning

At Hyde High School we have a collective responsibility for implementing behaviour for learning and ensuring high standards of pupil discipline.

We believe firmly in positive reinforcement and ‘certainly not severity’ where pupils are praised for getting things right.

 We aim to:

  • Ensure all stakeholders feel happy, safe and secure;
  • Ensure that effective teaching and learning can take place;
  • Promote good behaviour and encourage pupils to behave responsibly both in and out of school;
  • Promote a range of positive values and attitudes and an understanding of rights and responsibilities;
  • Provide systems for dealing effectively with incidents of unacceptable behaviour.
  • Ensure a positive, supportive and respectful ethos throughout the school reinforced by our  3 school rules.

There is a firm emphasis on prizes and verbal recognition. The reward system in the school uses positive points which apply to both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.

In addition to positive points, we will recognise students’ achievement and behaviour through:

verbal praise;  written praise for students’ work; displays of excellent work; recognition in school newsletters; postcards home; celebration assemblies; progress badges; attendance badges; awards at the annual sports presentation.
