Brownhill is a small specialist school which caters for pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties who have found it difficult to achieve their full potential in the mainstream sector.
The School tolerates a wide variety of behaviours but does not accept them as inevitable and unchangeable. The individual’s behaviours will be prioritised and through planned intervention and adherence to the rewards and sanctions in the Behaviour Policy, ensure that the consequences to behaviour are specific and limited.
All systems, teaching and management of the school focus on the promotion, establishment and internalisation of socially acceptable and appropriate behaviours.
Through an individualised approach in a consistent, caring and supportive environment each pupil will be given opportunities to encourage them to develop their skills, qualities and self-esteem.
With this positive behaviour management each pupil will be empowered as their confidence, ability and self-control is enhanced.
Children are encouraged to develop appropriate behaviour patterns. There is a warm caring attitude in adult-child relationships together with individual/ group tutorials and the systematic use of incentives. Children are dealt with as individuals and this facilitates pastoral care.
