Ready to learn

At Mangotsfield School we have introduced a behaviour for learning system called Ready to Learn. Every student at the school has the right to an education that is not disrupted by the behaviour of others.

As a school community we feel it is important to allow the students to remain focused, to take responsibility for their own actions, but also to allow staff to deliver engaging and creative lessons. To do this we feel we needed to introduce a strong approach to behaviour on the school site.

Students then can show they are ready to learn;

  • By being engaged and on task;
  • We allow others to learn;
  • Always follow instructions;
  • Treat our community with respect;

If a student fails to meet any of these four expectations then a warning will be given by a member of staff. This will be clear and will tell the student what it is for. If the student chooses to continue with the disruptive behaviour then they will be removed from the lesson and will spend an allocated period of time in the Ready to Learn room. They will be provided with work to complete and parents and carers will be informed. On being sent to this room they will also be held back at the end of the school day.

If a student fails to complete this sanction for continuing to be disruptive in this room, or they refuse to go into the Ready to Learn room, they will be excluded for a fixed term of one day. On their return to school they will have to attend a reintegration meeting with their parent/ carers. They will then complete the time in the Ready to Learn room.

Our Inclusion Team and Behaviour Team will take into account any students who may have educational needs.
