Behaviour and engagement

At Brantridge we have a credit and colour grading system, based on the 11 sessions during the school day, from breakfast until the end of the day, including breaks. Pupils are graded for each session on 3 separate elements:
• Engagement of learning/completion of work
• Demonstrating Manners and respect
• Behaviour
Pupils can gain one of 4 grades (Gold, Green, Amber and Red) which then collates towards their credit score for a trip at the end of each half term.

With a maximum 99 credits available in any one day, pupils are congratulated each morning in breakfast for achieving 93 or more credits the previous day. This provides a short term recognition of positive behaviour. Pupils are rewarded with a ‘Credit Trip’ at the end of each half term if they have achieved approximately 80% or more of the total credits on offer. This provides a more long term recognition of positive behaviour.

When pupils are finding themselves feeling anxious, they are offered an area in the inclusion room to calm or continue their work with the Behaviour team who will actively seek to reintegrate them, at their own pace, back to class.
Behaviour data is monitored regularly, and if needed, modifications to pupils timetables are made to ensure a tailored approach to learning. This is in consultation with the Therapy team, Behaviour and Senior Leaders.

On-going Assessment and Targets
At Brantridge School, we aim to be proactive in relation to behaviour management. Each item of the behaviour management policy is underpinned by on-going daily assessment of engagement and negative behaviours displayed, weekly target setting, planning and intervention for individual pupils at the Multi-Disciplinary meeting, and subsequent evaluation of the interventions introduced by Class teachers, Therapists and the Behaviour Team.

Each pupil has Positive Behaviour and Support Plan (PBSP) which is written with the child and his parents/carers. They are reviewed each term or more frequently if necessary. All staff in school are made aware of any changes to the plan so that they are fully informed when a new piece of information, change in response, or successful strategy is identified

The communication between home and school is excellent.
