Pivotal approach

Our Approach to Behaviour Management and Relationships

At Haileybury Turnford approach we are embracing a new approach to improve teaching and learning and create a positive climate and culture, benefiting all staff and students.  Over the next two years, we are implementing and embedding a new behaviour curriculum.  We will be working closely with Pivotal Education, an organisation supporting us to bring about significant change in our culture and learning environment.

All staff are receiving regular behaviour management training encouraging staff to think of practical ways to create and maintain a positive, supportive and safe environment that works for every student and every adult.

The Pivotal Curriculum approach encourages students to develop positive relationships and develop self-discipline.  The Pivotal framework places emphasis on developing positive relationships whilst maintaining our high expectations of students in order to create a calm and productive culture ensuring effective learning takes place.

Underpinning our behaviour curriculum are our three minimum expectations we ask of every student; Ready for learning, Respectful to all staff and students and Safe at all times.  Encouraging and modelling these expectations for our students will ensure we are creating the right culture in our school to enabling all students to succeed.

From our visit by Pivotal Education in January 2018

“It was a pleasure to visit yesterday, I certainly witnessed a noticeable difference in the atmosphere and general feeling of the school.  It is clear the efforts of all staff are paying off …” (Ollie Frith, Pivotal Education)
