The aims of the Behaviour Curriculum
|Successful relationships are underpinned by the positive ethos promoted in the academy culture; a culture which demands high expectations of staff and pupils and which also demonstrates respect, tolerance and understanding of difference, in the drive towards equity of opportunity and high aspirations for all. We aim to create a culture of exceptionally good behaviour: for learning, for community and for life.
We aim to build a community which values kindness, care, respect, tolerance and empathy for others and to help learners take control over their behaviour and be responsible for the consequences of it. We encourage pupils to value the diversity in our society and the environment in which they live whilst becoming active and responsible citizens, contributing to the community and society.
Through encouraging positive behaviour patterns we can promote good relationships throughout the academy community built on trust and understanding. We believe that as pupils practise these behaviours, over time they become habits that positively shape how they feel about themselves and how other people perceive them. As philosopher Paul Durant states “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” (1926)
