Behaviour policy

We believe that for effective teaching and learning to take place, good behaviour in all aspects of academy life is necessary. Ark Ayrton seeks to create a caring learning environment in the academy by:

  • Encouraging and acknowledging good behaviour and discipline.
  • Promoting self-esteem by encouraging students to value and respect themselves and others.
  • Providing a safe environment free from disruption, violence, bullying and any form of harassment.
  • Promoting early intervention.
  • Ensuring a consistency of response to both positive and negative behaviour.
  • Encouraging a positive relationship with parents and carers to develop a shared approach to involve them in the implementation of the academy’s policy and associated procedure.
  • Encouraging children to take responsibility for their behaviour.
  • Explaining unacceptable behaviour.
