Behaviour and rewards - an overview

Behaviour and rewards

To ‘be the best’, all students and staff must live and breathe The Clapham Character.  We expect students to exemplify this by modelling excellent behaviour which is a foundation stone of personal and collective success. Our behaviour for learning policy can be accessed by clicking here.

Below is a summary of our expectations in terms of your behaviour and attitudes.

Courage is the most important of all the virtues because, without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.” Maya Angelou

"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence." Helen Keller

 

Commitment is an act, not a word.” Jean-Paul Sartre

 

Courage – so that I will:

Confidence – so that I will:

Commitment – so that I will:

  • be the best version of myself that I can be
  • champion inclusion and make the world a better place
  • persevere and successfully meet the challenges of 6th Form studies.
  • believe in myself and what I can achieve
  • use my range of talents to the full
  • help shape my community and be a role model for modern Britain.
  • walk the talk’ and have the discipline to make things happen
  • work hard and take actions to achieve my full potential
  • think and act positively for others and not just myself.

Our rules for bringing The Clapham Character to life.

 

As a student, I:

Be committed and ready to learn/teach  

  1. complete my prep work and actively revise
  2. get to the academy and my sessions on time
  3. have all the resources needed for each session.

Be confident enough to take responsibility  

  1. will follow the dress code and wear my lanyard at all times
  2. am a role model for others, never bullying or making anyone feel unsafe
  3. will develop as a leader, including asking for help when needed.

Have the courage to stand up for the importance of respect 

  1. listen and respect the views of others
  2. protect and respect the academy environment e.g. do not drop litter
  3. will be inclusive in my language and actions.

Praise, recognition and rewards always come first, with the focus on going above and beyond.

Rewards come from going above and beyond – a reflection of going the ‘extra mile’ or a cumulation of 100% effort, dedication and hard work sustained over time, that leads to the highest possible achievements.
