Attitude to Learning

Attitude to Learning (Behaviour & Rewards) - Statement of Principles

The statement of Principles is intended to create an environment in which:

  • every student is valued and encouraged to develop a sense of responsibility for their own learning and to the community at large in line with the Abbeywood Expectations
  • effective learning and teaching takes place for all students
  • positive attitudes to learning are taught and modelled by all staff
  • a positive school ethos celebrates all achievement through an effective and consistently applied system of rewards
  • expectations are high, but clear and effective procedures and sanctions are in place to respond to disciplinary incidents and these are applied firmly, fairly and consistently by all staff
  • appropriate interventions support students with identified behaviour and learning needs, including emotional needs
  • there is a strong sense of respect, including self-respect and respect for others regardless of race, culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation or ability and an understanding of the individual and shared responsibilities which underpin the rights of all members of the school community; this is outlined in the school's Single Equalities policy.
