  • Staff and volunteers set an excellent example to pupils at all times
  • Rewards, sanctions and reasonable force are used consistently by staff, in line with the behaviour policy
  • The Positive Relationships and Behaviour Policy is understood by pupils and staff
  • The Positive Relationships and Behaviour Policy explains that exclusions will only be used as a last resort, and outlines the processes involved in permanent and fixed-term exclusions
