Heathlands creates an ethos where effective learning can take place. Pupils are encouraged to accept and recognise responsibility for their own actions and the consequences of their decisions. Successive Ofsted inspections have described the behaviour of pupils at Heathands as “exemplary” and “very good”.
In order to maintain this high standard we recognise the importance of working in partnership with parents and encouraging their full co-operation and support. We also recognise the importance of placing greater emphasis on positive reinforcement of good behaviour. This will be in the form or encouragement and praise in order to value, reinforce and reward good or improved behaviour, achievement and/or effort in learning.
