The Warwickshire Academy is dedicated to ensuring that our environment supports the behaviour, learning and wellbeing of pupils and staff through a strong sense of community cohesion. Cooperation, support and respect are the foundations of our community and we work hard to provide a safe environment where pupils feel included in every aspect of Academy life.
The Warwickshire Academy uses the BEAR approach to behaviour, reflection and reward, which is fundamentally built upon the four areas of Behaviour, Engagement, Achievement and Respect. Pupils are able to work towards achieving in each of these areas throughout the day to support them in developing their academic skills and ability in addition to their behavioural, social and emotional needs. We believe that in conjunction with consistent behaviour boundaries, and reliable support systems, praise and rewards for positive behaviour are an important part of building an effective learning community and this is a key part of daily life at The Warwickshire Academy.
Pupils at The Warwickshire Academy have the opportunity to reflect, repair and reward (RRR) throughout each day, enabling them to build resilience, independence, and the ability to reflect on their choices, achievements, and behaviour. Staff support these sessions, encouraging positive mental well-being through the use of counselling skills and therapeutic approaches. This approach supports each pupil to develop the understanding they need, the rewards they deserve and the ability to be able to repair and reflect where necessary, informing positive behaviour and choices in the future.
By encouraging the ability to reflect, repair and reward, we develop positive behaviour support that promotes good relationships throughout the Academy across all staff and pupils; built on trust, understanding and acceptance. We support every pupil in developing their social awareness, understanding and adaptability and we aim to ensure that all our pupils leave the Academy with the key life skills they need to continue to progress to the best of their ability in all areas of their lives.
Positive behaviour and mental wellbeing are fundamental in learning effectively and are vital to pupils’ success and happiness, both during and after their time with us. All staff are dedicated to ensuring that the whole Academy environment supports both academic learning and the wellbeing of pupils and staff through a strong sense of community cohesion. We work hard to provide a safe environment where pupils feel included in every aspect of Academy life and we hope that by encouraging positive behaviour patterns through the use of our systems and approaches, we can promote strong, healthy relationships throughout the Academy built on trust and understanding.
