Behaviour

We believe that in order for pupils to make the most of their talents and abilities, they need to understand the positive behaviours which are important for them to grow in order to develop in to an effective lifelong learner. Our Core Learning Characteristics explain what these behaviours are and rewards pupils for showing them with stickers and postcards. We work with our children to develop these skills and both reward them for doing so and celebrate them with parents and the school community.‚Äč

At Maltby Manor Academy we expect the highest standards of behaviour and good learning attitudes at all times. In order to make sure that all members of our school community understand the behaviour we expect to see, we have a structured behaviour policy which explains the expectations for all pupils. Our behaviour policy is founded on our School Charter:-

We agree to:

  • Work hard
  • Wear our school uniform.
  • Help each other.
  • Look after each other.
  • Look after our equipment.
  • Have manners.
  • Listen to each other.

We encourage children to follow our charter by rewarding pupils who do the right thing and also have clear and simple consequences for those who sometimes do not.

All staff and pupils have rights and responsibilities which must be upheld if the community is to work together effectively.

Star Award

A 'Star' is given when children are sent to the Principal to reward excellent learning, behaviour, engagement, manner or helping others around school. Only the Principal/Senior leader are to give the stars so that this excellence is recognised. Throughout their time at school, a child collects the stars which build up from Bronze, through Silver, Gold, Ruby and Emerald, before finishing on Diamond.  In order to maintain high expectations and give the precious nature of the stars, this reward is given infrequently for efforts which are outstanding for the individual child. The aim is to have no more than 8 stars a year – except in special circumstances.
