Attitudes To Learning
At Spring Lane School we provide a culture and climate of improved behaviour from our pupils, allowing pupils to respond positively to peers and trusted adults and repair their attitudes to learning.
We are inclusive at our heart and respect that all pupils have different stories and experiences that dictates their behaviours for learning and trust in adults. Through persistence, unconditional regard and a development of our trauma informed practice we help pupils reflect on their attitudes and aspirations for themselves and to embed expectations of what steps are needed to be successful.
The intent and expectations of the behaviour of our school community at all times centres around:
Respect - Everyone will respect each other, take good care of themselves, the school and wider community, and their property
Responsibility - Everyone will take responsibility for their actions, participate in learning, be present at school and be punctual
Resilience - Everyone will be supportive of each other, learn to be resilient in new experiences and unrelenting in our pursuit to change our futures
Pupils can earn achievement points around school for exceptional demonstrations and actions in each of the three qualities
We celebrate engagement and progress in our classrooms through our Steps2Success framework. We expect that our pupils accept the challenge of each lesson and use this as a platform to be challenged and be successful, paving the way to a more positive future. Our pupils are given a score and language indicator each lesson, (Steps2Success) which demonstrates their efforts in learning and conduct in the lesson. All pupils start every lesson a fresh, and start ready to Accept the Challenge.
Pupils that need to demonstrate expectations, have not accepted the support given to them and r will be expected to have a restorative conversation with the staff member(s) prior to ending the day and going home.
I have Changed my Future = 5 points per lesson
I have been Determined to Succeed = 4 points per lesson
I have Accepted the Challenge = 3 points per lesson
I need to Accept the Support = 2 points per lesson
I need to Demonstrate Expectations = 1 point per lesson
The introduction of this has seen significant improvements on our climate around the school, more learning taking place, significant reductions in our suspensions and a culture building on restorative practice.
We celebrate progress and achievements of our pupils at our Attitudes and Experiences Assembly on a Friday, at both Radcliffe and Park House, where pupils can leave with a certificate of recognition for their efforts before rewards time.
Rewards time takes place on a Friday, where pupils have choices of activities to enjoy and build relationships with both peers and adults.
