Standards for Success

A Guide to Positive Behaviour and Sanctions

Many parents state their reason for choosing Ossett Academy for their children is the high standards of behaviour that are expected of all of our students.

We have firm but fair policies and procedures to ensure that all of our students behave in a respectful and tolerant way, to staff, other students and members of the local community.

Visitors constantly comment on the fantastic way that students conduct themselves around the building and we always receive excellent feedback from trip facilitators when our students are out on educational visits.

As an academy we have clear guidelines on rewards and sanctions , as outlined in the attached document.

We reward positive behaviour in a number of ways, including verbal praise, positive points, reward vouchers, presentations in assemblies and reward trips. Equally we operate a clear system of escalating sanctions for any behaviour that does not meet our high expectations.

Our Learning Leaders and Achievement Officers work closely with parents/carers to ensure positive student behaviour. If you have any queries about our Standards for Success , please contact your child’s Learning Leader in the first instance.
