  • Continue to include all staff and pupil feedback in planning the next steps and ensure full consultation in areas such as rewards for attendance and behaviour. This is via school council, parent questionnaires, department meetings and weekly one-to-one head of department meetings with a member of the senior leadership team (SLT).
  • Fully embed electronic recording of behaviour incidents in whole school planning to inform decision making
