The Principles

At DTRB we are an inclusive school and have a number of specialised staff and areas within school to support pupils who are experiencing difficulties.  We work closely with parents and carers to ensure that all of our pupils achieve their full potential and are happy at school.

The aim of this policy is to ensure that the school offers a safe, positive and caring environment in which all children have the opportunity to achieve to the very highest of standards. A calm school, in which children are behaving well and showing respect and consideration for others, will provide the right climate for high levels of achievement. To this end, the policy sets out measures which, in accordance with section 89 of the Education and Inspections Act 2006, aims to:

  • Uphold the school mission statement ‘Believe, Achieve, Succeed’
  • Promote outstanding behaviour, self-discipline and respect in our school and in the community
  • Promote self-esteem, self-discipline, proper regard for authority and positive relationships based on mutual respect
  • Provide a safe environment, free from disruption, violence, bullying and any form of harassment and discriminatory behaviour
  • Secure an acceptable standard of behaviour from all pupils
  • Ensure pupils complete assigned work
  • Promote resilience and independence to support pupils to be self-assured, committed and outstanding learners
  • Encourage consistency of response to both positive and negative behaviour
  • Promote early intervention
  • Encourage a positive relationship with parents and carers to develop a shared approach to involve them in the implementation of the school’s policy and associated procedures
  • Promote a culture of praise and encouragement so that all pupils can achieve to their full

In some rare circumstances, we may need to exclude a pupil. A pupil can be excluded for a variety of reasons however usually this is because their behaviour has been unacceptable and they need some time out of school. Exclusions can take effect immediately and the Headteacher decides if this is a fixed period exclusion or a permanent exclusion. Following an exclusion of any period, a reintegration meeting is arranged between pupil, parent and members of school staff.
