Behaviour and Welfare

'Pupil behaviour, readiness to learn and attitudes to learning were stunning throughout the day'  The School Improvement Advisor made the following comment after her visit on the 26th February 2015

At The Bewdley School and Sixth Form Centre we understand that behaviour of learners is a collective responsibility and that promoting good behaviour in learners should be a partnership between home and school. We believe that everyone has the right:

  • to learn without distraction or interruption, ensuring that learners complete assigned work;
  • to be safe in school and on the journey to and from school;
  • to be treated with respect.

The Bewdley School encourages learners to acquire self-discipline and to have an understanding of their rights and responsibilities. The school promotes learner self confidence, self-assurance and knowledge of their potential. All learners are expected to show consideration for others and to be respectful towards other people and their property/environment.

All staff are expected to recognise and praise good behaviour, to deal with inappropriate conduct and to adhere to the reward and staged sanction guidelines consistently and fairly. All staff are expected to establish a consistent approach to learners and, in the first instance, take responsibility for control and welfare of all learners.

When bullying is reported the incident is recorded and fully investigated to ensure that the incident is resolved clearly and decisively, with all parties involved knowing the outcome. Learners are expected to attend school regularly and arrive on time.

The  Bewdley School Dress Code aims to establish a sense of equality and helps to instil pride and loyalty in our school. Everyone is expected to uphold the Dress Code and establish a high standard of appearance in the school and locality.

The School recognises its responsibilities for safeguarding children. The school annually reviews safeguarding policies to ensure the safety and well being of all learners. The School ensures that all learners understand how to keep themselves safe from relevant risks such as exploitation and extremism, including when using the internet and social media.
