Behaviour and Exclusions

Behaviour and Exclusions

The College is committed to ensuring the highest standards of behaviour and conduct from our pupils at all times, both in and out of school. To support this we have a comprehensive rewards and celebration programme based around the Sawston Challenge, which recognises pupil success and effort in a number of ASPIRE related areas. We also have in place clear expectations regarding pupil conduct, setting out appropriate behaviour in the classroom, in and around the rest of the school and in the community. These expectations, though not exhaustive, are set out in the Pupil Planner and displayed through the school.

We look to parents for support in implementing this code of conduct. Our aim is to prevent problems escalating and believe that close co-operation between home and school is essential in achieving this. If pupils know that parents are supporting the school it gives a very clear message that poor behaviour which harms their own learning and that of others will not be tolerated. We also can provide additional support to our pupils through our links with the LA Locality Team and our membership of the East and South Cambs Inclusion Partnership. Our partnerships in supporting positive behaviour have earned national praise from the Department for Education, Education Funding Agency and contributed significantly to Ofsted judging behaviour as outstanding in their last inspection of the College in 2013.

Our anti-bullying policy can also be found below. While bullying is rare at Sawston Village College, where it does happen it is vital for pupils and parents to alert the school. No one should suffer in silence and, while it can be challenging to come forward, and sometimes solutions are not easy or quick to implement, we are determined to stamp out bullying where it does it occur. No child or adult has the right to deprive another of their right to education or to undermine their safety and well being.
