Positive relationships and behaviour

Bank View School recognises that positive behaviour is a key element of creating confident, independent and skilled learners who able to make a valuable contribution to society.

The key principles of the policy are:

  • ·         Students are consulted and contribute towards the behaviour policy
  • ·         Students are confident and self-assured learners
  • ·         Students have a positive attitude and are respectful to the school community
  • ·         Students are proud of their school
  • ·         Students are self-disciplined and incidents of low level behaviour are rare
  • ·         Students understand how their education equips them with the behaviours and attitudes necessary to succeed in the next stage of education, training or employment
  • ·         To facilitate a sustained improvement in Students’ behaviour within targeted groups. Where behaviour is already excellent, this is maintained.
  • ·         Students work hard to prevent all forms of bullying, including online and prejudice-based bullying
  • ·         Students feel safe within school and are ready to learn
  • ·         Students can manage behaviour effectively during unstructured play such as at lunch time.

Bank View is part of the Liverpool Hearts project. The research and training from this project has been used to inform our updated policy. It remains a whole school priority.

The idea was developed to build the capacity of Liverpool schools to address the critical issues of attachment and trauma for the benefit of the whole learning community.
