Behaviour

Our behaviour policy ensures that rewards and sanctions are utilised. We are embarking on how we can work with pupils so that they are aware of how positive behaviours improve their learning and they develop the skills to clearly judge their behaviour.

At Beam, we expect all members of the community to treat each other with mutual respect and take responsibility for our own actions. We expect our children to be kind and considerate to one another and to learn from our mistakes. We work in partnership with you to ensure your child is safe and ready to learn. The governing body takes behaviour seriously and recognise that we must promote behaviours which enable our children to succeed in their future lives.

Please read our behaviour policy.

Attendance

Attendance

In March 2016 the Department for Education (DfE) published a report on the link between absence and attainment in Key Stage (KS) 2 and KS4. The findings are based on the attainment of pupils at the end of KS2 and KS4 in state-funded mainstream schools in the 2013/14 academic year, compared to their level of absence across all years in the relevant Key Stage.

Key findings for KS2 show that, in general, the higher the overall absence rate across the Key Stage, the lower the likely level of attainment at the end of KS2.
