Rewards and Consequences

At RBA we are committed to ensuring that all of our students achieve their very best. They are expected to aim high, work hard and be polite. We strive to create a safe and stimulating learning environment where exemplary behaviour is at the heart of productive learning. We seek to embed a culture of praise, encouragement, self-discipline and resilience in our students, and provide early intervention to prevent issues escalating. We place a heavy emphasis on positive relationships between staff and students, and endeavour to ensure we have consistency in response to both positive and negative behaviour.

Rewards

A school ethos of encouragement and praise is central to the promotion of good behaviour and committed learning. Our rewards take many forms; it is important that effort and achievement of all kinds are treated as noteworthy. Each reward is worth a certain amount of House Points.

Exemplary effort and committed learning in the classroom or at home will be rewarded with a House Point (R1), which will be added electronically to the student’s profile on EduLink. House Points are celebrated weekly by the Head of Year and Form Tutors in assemblies. For sustained and/or outstanding effort shown in class or at home students will be awarded a Head of Department/Head of Year Award (R2) and will be recognised personally for their achievements.

A special award celebrated each Friday is the Headteacher’s Commendation (R3); nominated by staff for going ‘above and beyond’ in school or the wider community and presented by the Headteacher. Those who receive two or more Headteacher’s Commendations in half a term are issued with a Governors’ Commendation (R4) and invited to attend a reward meeting with the Governors at the end of the half term.

Every term, subject departments and Heads of Year will nominate a student from each year group for the Rising Stars board, to recognise that they have consistently worked hard to improve their learning, attendance, punctuality, behaviour or attitude to learning. These students’ names and photos will be displayed on the Rising Stars board within the department as an RBA Hero (R5).

During the year, the school holds a Celebrating Achievement Assembly (R6) and an Awards Evening (R7) to recognise academic progress and achievement, as well as contributions to the wider community. Parents are also invited to attend these assemblies.

RBA Rewards 2021-22

Consequences

Our Consequences System is designed to support students in their learning and enjoyment of school. It is also there to support our ethos and values i.e. the way in which we expect students to treat each other and the environment.

Whilst our ethos is to reward students as often as possible, there inevitably have to be clear expectations regarding behaviour. The R&C system is based on promoting learning; any type of behaviour that prevents the student or others from learning will be taken very seriously.

Our Consequences System is based on a fair set of rules that will be applied by all staff consistently. The system gives students the chance to behave. If they choose not to, they will be given a verbal warning (C1). Following the first warning, students will be given the choice of regulating their own behaviour, or they will receive another verbal consequence (C2).

If students do not respond to the verbal warnings, they will receive an after-school detention (C3) lasting 45 minutes. They can also receive an automatic C3 for meeting certain threshold criteria, such as using their mobile phone on the school site. Parents will receive an e-mail notification detailing the date of the detention and reason the detention was set. Should you require further information or wish to discuss the incident, then please contact the member of staff who issued it.

Persistent or serious behaviour will result in more serious consequences such as an SLT Detention (C4), lasting 75 minutes after-school on Friday afternoon, an isolation (C4), Saturday detention (C5), fixed term internal exclusion (C6), fixed term external exclusion (C6) or permanent exclusion (C7).

Whilst all disciplinary matters are dealt with on their individual merits, we aim to be fair with consequences and would emphasise our expectations of your support.
