At The Heights we pride ourselves on high expectations of pupil behaviour. We have an embedded Behaviour Management policy which is based on rewards and consequences.
Pupils are rewarded for positive choices and we have a celebration assembly of achievement every Friday afternoon. Pupils are rewarded each day through Epraise and can earn points for Positive engagement in the classroom, pupils are also rewarded with positive phone calls home and postcards of praise from staff.
Senior & Pastoral Leaders deliver daily assemblies to pupils, which include but not limited to Behavior expectations & reminders

Behaviour is overseen by Miss Morris (Assistant Headteacher) with the Support of Mr Doohan (Behaviour Lead), whose role is to support and deal with any occurrences of challenging behaviour whilst supporting all staff in implementing the behaviour policy within school.
