Fitzharrys students are expected to come in each day with a positive approach to learning. They should be keen to participate in lessons and set challenging goals for growth, as well as taking responsibility for their behaviour in class and around school.
Fitzharrys is a positive school with high expectations and standards. We place great importance on celebrating and rewarding achievement to encourage students to make the right choices and invest in their learning, and we use an effective system to ensure good behaviour for learning and address any issues. Our behaviour system, the ‘ABC levels’, is used consistently across every classroom, making rewards and consequences very clear to every student. We have a policy of no shouting and a culture of mutual respect. We work on the principle of doing ‘the right thing, in the right place, at the right time’, and our pupils respond to these clear expectations.
As Ofsted recognised, “The behaviour of pupils is good. Pupils enjoy each other’s company at social times and value the good friendships they make here. They are respectful to each other, staff and visitors and enjoy the pleasant and secure environment the school offers.”
Full details on Fitzharrys’ behaviour expectations are set out in our school policies.
