A culture of high expectation and achievement requires a commitment to hard work and self-discipline. Ark Globe Academy has a highly structured and orderly environment where everyone is well mannered and shows respect for others.
Our behaviour code reinforces students’ responsibility for their actions. We are quick to praise and reward and equally swift to tackle misbehaviour. Central to our philosophy of achievement is maintaining a calm and positive environment in the academy, so that teachers can teach and students can learn. Helping all students to behave responsibly creates a strong academy identity which students can be proud of.
“The behaviour of students is outstanding. Students respond extremely well to teachers’ insistence on high standards of behaviour in lessons and show very positive attitudes to their work.” Ofsted
At our Academy we have a policy of prevention. Preventing bullying is far easier than responding to incidents when they occur. To prevent bullying, we promote a common anti-bullying approach in which we are supportive of each other, provide positive role models and shared values, and are clear that we will not tolerate unacceptable behaviour.
If bullying is suspected or reported, the incident will be dealt with immediately by the member of staff who has been approached. We will record a clear account of the incident and share this with the parent/carer and the Head of School. We will support affected pupils by offering immediate and continuous support with a member of staff of their choice, working to restore self-esteem and confidence. We'll work with pupils guilty of bullying by discussing what happened and explaining why it was wrong, understanding why they became involved, and creating a strategy for change together with the pupil's parent/carer.
If you are concerned that your child could be experiencing bullying, please let us know as soon as you can and we will work together to resolve the situation.
