Norbridge Learning Code

What is the Norbridge Learning Code?

The Norbridge Learning Code shows children their obligations with regard to behaviour and rewards them when they demonstrate the school’s values. It encourages children to be the best they can be and it gives them the opportunity to reflect on their behaviour and make the right choices.

 

The Expectations:

The Norbridge Learning Code requires children to:

  • Always follow the rules.

  • Try their hardest even when finding things difficult.

  • Be kind to others.

  • Help people when they can.

  • Be a positive role model to their peers.

  • Behave respectfully to all members of our school community.

  • Be honest and trustworthy.

  • Uphold the values of our school and always strive to ‘Be The Best They Can Be’.

  • Respect the views of others.

  • Treat all people equally and fairly.

 

How Does It Work?

The Norbridge Learning Code makes it very clear what is expected in terms of learning behaviour and what will happen if behaviour drops below the expected standard. It offers incentives for children to demonstrate consistently high levels of good learning and rewards those children who are keen to help themselves and others. Norbridge Academy’s staff are the role models and the Norbridge Learning Code applies to them as well.

There are four levels of progress in the Norbridge Learning Code. Although it is possible for all children to earn a blue band by the time they leave Norbridge Academy, earning a blue band requires commendation from the Senior Leadership Team.

 

Bronze Learners

Bronze learners follow the Norbridge Learning Code on a day to day basis. We expect all children from Foundation Stage 1 to Year 6 to achieve and sustain this level. A bronze learner is someone who follows the school rules and who comes to school ready to learn. They do not interrupt learning: they understand and contribute to a positive learning environment and they are respectful and kind to others.

 

Silver Learners

A silver learner is someone who consistently follows the Norbridge Learning Code, needing very few reminders. We would expect most children in Key Stage 1 and all children in Key Stage 2 to work towards and achieve a silver band. A silver learner knows what he or she must do to be a successful learner and they work hard towards achieving this.

 

Gold Learners

A gold learner knows what he or she must do to be a successful learner and they work hard towards achieving this. They are a positive role model to their peers and are keen to contribute to a positive learning environment. They are honest and trustworthy and are always willing to help others.

 

Blue Learners

Blue learners are recognised by the Senior Leadership Team as someone who continuously upholds the values of our school and always strive to be the best they can be. They know what makes a successful learner and work hard towards achieving this for themselves as well as helping others to do the same. They are very supportive of the school and are seen as ambassadors for the school.

Teachers and staff can decide if a child is ready to progress to the next band. Silver, Gold and Blue bands are awarded when teachers and staff see significant and long term evidence of a child meeting the criteria of each band. We hope that children are motivated to progress through the bands as this will mean they are demonstrating consistently good attitudes towards their learning.

 

What happens if children don’t follow the Norbridge Learning Code?

When a child makes a mistake by not meeting an aspect of the Norbridge Learning Code, they will be given a verbal warning which gives them the opportunity to put things right. If they continue to make the wrong choices, they will be given a First Warning, encouraging them to think further about their behaviour. If behaviour persists and they have had the opportunity to talk to an adult and think about their behaviour, they will be given a Second Warning and asked to change seats. If behaviour continues, children will be given a Third Warning and be taken to a different classroom to work. Finally, if children do not improve their behaviour, they will be taken to see the Headteacher. If this happens, children will lose their Norbridge Learning Code band. If a child has their band removed they will have to earn it back within the timescales for each level. See the table below:

 

 

Band Loss and Consequence

Bronze

Silver

Gold

Blue

1 Week – Return to Gold

 

There are some behaviours that are unacceptable in school. These behaviours result in instant band loss. These behaviours are:

  • Physical violence

  • Racist and homophobic language

 

When a band is lost, parents are informed and they may be invited into school to discuss the matter with the class teacher and SLT. If a child continues to receive warnings about their behaviour and has lost their band on three occasions during a half-term, parents/carers will be invited in to discuss the ways that we can help improve behaviour. Staff will work with the child to discover what is stopping them from following the Norbridge Learning Code and put strategies in place to help overcome barriers.
