Behaviour and Discipline Policy
At Assunah the Aims and Discipline policy will reflect the ethos of the school; the objective is to promote Islamic behaviour of high moral standards. We believe that in order for learning to occur, good behaviour and discipline is a necessary required. We further believe that as Muslims any behaviour should reflect that of the Prophet (PBUH).The primary aim of the behaviour and discipline policy is to promote good relationships, so that people can work together with the common purpose of helping everyone to learn.
Aims and expectations
It is a primary aim of our school that every member of the school community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring community, with values built on Islamic principles such as mutual trust and respect for all. The school behaviour policy is therefore designed to support a way in which all members of the school can live and work together.
The school expects every member of the school community to behave in a considerate way towards others.
We treat all children fairly and apply this behaviour policy in a consistent way.
This policy aims to help children to learn, and grow in a safe and secure environment, and to become positive, responsible and increasingly independent members of the school community.
The school rewards good behaviour, as it believes that this will develop an ethos of kindness and co-operation.
Rewards, punishments and sanctions
We praise and reward children for good behaviour in a variety of ways:
Teachers congratulate children;
· Children are awarded with golden time every week;
· Each week we nominate a child from each class to be ‘star of the week’;
· Each ‘star of the week’ receives a certificate in the school assembly;
· We distribute stars to children either for consistent good work or behaviour, or to acknowledge outstanding effort or acts of kindness in school;
· The motivation board (reward biard) is an on-going incentive throughout the pupil’s time at Assunnah School. For each 10 stars awarded in Reception and KS1 and for each 15 stars awarded in KS2 a sticker is placed on the child’s record on the board. After receiving 10 stickers a certificate is given and the pupil moves on to the next level. There are five levels in total. Where a child joins the school after Reception class, double stickers are given in the first year as an incentive to catch up with other pupils.
· Classes have an opportunity to lead an achievement assembly where they are able to show examples of their best work.
· Children are taught about rewards and sanctions so they understand the implications of their actions, but also to emphasis our lives on earth and how humans are and will be rewarded and punished by Allah (SWT).
· Teachers may choose to reward the class as a whole either by organising a shared activity enjoyed by all the children or visiting the local library (with the consent of the Head or Deputy Head).
