The behaviour grade
All reports will contain a behaviour grade.
This relates to the behaviour your child displays in the class. Good behaviour allows your child and others to focus on the lesson and provides a calm working environment that helps them learn. This is different from the effort grade, as some students can work hard but may often shout out, disturbing the lesson.
- Outstanding behaviour. If your child has this grade, it means that they behave well in class. It suggests that they are polite when spoken to and follow instructions given by the teacher. They may display behaviours that support other students or the teacher, such as helping other students when they are stuck or offering to give out books.
- Good behaviour. If your child has this grade, it suggests that they behave well in class, and are polite to others during the lesson. They follow instructions the majority of the time but may talk out of turn, such as when the teacher is talking to the class.
- Requires improved behaviour. If your child has this grade, it suggests that they create distractions in class, such as talking to others, which limits the learning in the lesson. In general, they follow the majority of instructions.
- Inadequate behaviour. If your child has this grade, it suggests that their behaviour regularly disrupts the learning of themselves and others. Such behaviour may include arguing with the teacher, shouting at other students, walking around the classroom when students should be working and refusing staff instructions.
