Both Challney High School for Boys and Denbigh High School have well developed approaches for dealing with behaviour issues. Support can be provided by either school.
Visitors to both schools regularly comment on the high standards of behaviour they observe and attendance at the schools is excellent, creating a very receptive environment for learning.
We ascribe our success in this area to the following:
- school leaders from both schools meet regularly as a pastoral forum to share effective practice
- we have implemented an effective monitoring process that measures behaviour and its effect on learning on a lesson-by-lesson basis
- we have a highly developed rewards and sanctions programme
- we have an extensive and successful parental engagement programme that targets particular groups of pupils
- we have an inclusive learning area designed to support a variety of our pupils’ needs and to help them access the mainstream curriculum
- our staff CPD and induction programmes focus on core standards and procedures to ensure that learning and teaching maximise positive behaviour
- our pupil induction programme in year seven also focuses on core standards and effective interaction with other people
- an Assistant Headteacher has successfully completed training as a ‘Lead Behaviour Professional’
- both schools have a very low level of fixed term and permanent exclusions compared to national averages
- our links with parents and the local community are excellent and are demonstrated by the high levels of attendance and engagement at parents’ evenings and other parent meetings.
We are able to provide behaviour related support to schools that are within and outside of our partnership.
