Behaviour and Rewards
At Heworth we strongly believe no one has the right to disrupt learning, enabling all students to achieve
We will work together to provide the best learning experience possible for all students and ensure that it takes place in an environment that is safe, supportive and positive; an environment of mutual respect and where the progress of each student is central to everything that we do. We will always respect, encourage and support the dreams and aspirations of every student throughout their time at Heworth. All students can be confident that no obstacles will prevent them from attaining their goals whether that be on the basis of their gender, ethnicity, beliefs, sexual or gender orientation, personal circumstance, or social background. All students have the right to expect that they can reach the very highest levels of achievement at Heworth Grange and that no barriers exist that can prevent that success. Individuals will be recognised, respected, celebrated, and valued for their individual achievements by all students, staff, parents, carers, and the wider community.
Basic Expectations and routines
The non-negotiables we enforce in order to allow all students to learn include:
- Show respect to others at all times
- Demonstrate courtesy and consideration for others at all times
- Follow instructions the first time
- Do not disrupt the learning of others
- Listen in silence when a member of staff or student is talking to the class
- Have high standards in everything that you do
Our whole school rewards system is currently being reviewed. Praise points are awarded to students for a range of behaviours. These praise points are added to students' profiles on class charts and tracked by the Head of Year. The positive praise points then contribute to the end-of-term rewards trips and prizes. We are working with our student voice and student council to update our rewards system in school.
