Behaviour and rewards

‘Behaviour in lessons and around the school is exemplary. Students are polite and respectful, and their well-above average attendance shows not only how much they enjoy school, but also how keen they are to do well.’ Ofsted, 2014.


our approach

The Behaviour for Learning Policy seeks to promote high expectations of all students in order to achieve the vision of ‘Outstanding Achievement for All’.

Silverdale School wants everyone:

  • To experience outstanding teaching.
  • To feel welcomed and that they belong.
  • To achieve beyond expectation.
  • To be known and cared for.
  • To know that their talents are nurtured and achievements celebrated.
  • To be prepared for the future and plays a positive part in society.

“All staff. All students. All of the time.”


Code of Conduct

The School Code of Conduct is there for the good of everyone. It applies to students, staff, governors and parents and is underpinned by the belief that if we work together we will set a high expectation and good example.

We expect everyone in the school:

  • To promote inclusion for all.
  • To have good attendance and to dress appropriately for school.
  • To act with care, consideration and respect to others at all times.
  • To contribute to a positive and safe learning environment.
  • To actively engage with outstanding teaching and learning.


The school uses two clear systems:

  • Choice, Chance, Consequence for behaviour.
  • Silver Stars for rewards.
