Tor School is committed to the creation of teaching and learning environments which meet the needs of young people. We aim to empower children to achieve in an atmosphere of safety and mutual respect. By removing barriers to learning that have been entrenched in former educational settings we work to support transfers back to mainstream school, further education or the world of work. Everyone is expected to behave in a reasonable way, to accept responsibility for their behaviour and to encourage others to do the same.
The purpose of the policy is to provide a simple, practical code-of-conduct for staff, learners and parent/ carers which:
• Recognises behavioural norms
• Positively reinforces behavioural norms
• Promotes self esteem and self discipline
• Teaches appropriate behaviour through positive interventions
