    Behaviour for Learning

    At Hillside we have the highest expectation for excellent Behaviour for Learning. We report home at each P2S round using the following criteria: 

    1: Expected Behaviour

    A pupil consistently meets the school’s day to day standards and expectations. When re-focussing is required, the pupil responds respectfully and addresses areas of concern.

    2: Unsatisfactory Behaviour

    A pupil’s behaviour has a negative impact on the progress of the lesson and its learners. When re– focussing takes place, the pupil can lack cooperation and take too long to address areas of concern.

    3: Cause For Concern

    A pupil’s behaviour has been detrimental to the progress of the lesson and its learners. The pupil has failed to respond and improve, despite the range of sanctions that have been put in place. The pupil may have been involved in a serious breach of the Behaviour for Learning Policy.

    Having 'a go' but asking for help and support when necessary Draw diagrams, graphs and table outlines neatly with a sharp pencil - use a ruler for axes and straight lines
