Samuel Ryder is committed to supporting all students to fulfil their behavioural and academic potential. The school will therefore ensure appropriate support strategies are available to students to meet their particular needs.
Guidance is provided to staff on strategies they can employ to help them promote positive behaviour and attendance and respond to misbehaviour or absence, and we discuss any training or support needs both on an ongoing basis and as part of our performance review process.
We recognise that parents’ responsibilities in ensuring the good behaviour and attendance of their children are significant, and always try to work in partnership with them to achieve positive outcomes. We value their active support, and in return we try to make sure parents know about anything we are proud of, or concerned about. We invite parents when we celebrate achievement; and offer support and help when it is needed. We also offer regular workshops for parents on topics designed to improve student learning.
