Home / Behaviour


We want all students at St Ivo Academy to fulfil their potential and we believe that outstanding behaviour is the best foundation for achieving this. Student behaviour should be outstanding both in lessons and outside. All staff and students are familiar with the three key words “ready, respectful, safe” which are at the core of our expectations.

For more information please access our behaviour policy.

Parents’ frequently asked questions

Below is a selection of some of the questions parents have frequently asked with regard to behaviour and the new policy.

Why would my son/daughter be sent to the Reflection Room?

Some of the main reasons for a student being sent to the Reflection Room include:

  • If learning is being significantly disrupted and other strategies have not been effective
  • If behaviour at break, lunch, between lessons or to and from school is not outstanding and brings the school’s name in to disrepute
  • Referral by Head of Year for truancy, or an escalation of a general pattern of behaviour.

It is likely to be one of these reasons that result in a student being sent to the Reflection Room.

Who do I contact if I require more information about the referral to the Reflection Room?

The Head of Year or Assistant Head of Year. Email addresses for contacting them can be found on the contact us page.

What extra rewards are now in place?

Various awards are made as part of the House and year systems, including praise assemblies, postcards home, vouchers, and mascot trophies and pin badges.

Who do I report poor behaviour to if mentioned to me by my son/daughter?

Please contact the Head of Year, or in the case of poor behaviour during lesson time the Head of Department for the subject. A list of Heads of Year and Heads of department can be found on the staff page, with email addresses on the contact us page.

What is the frequency of House points and negative points?

All staff aim to give at least four positive House points for every negative point.
