TDA 2.9 Procedures Our school aims to provide a healthy balance between recognition and consequences. Pupils should learn to expect recognition for positive behaviour and fair and consistently applied consequences for inappropriate behaviour.
The ethos, mission, aims and values of a school is normally based on the beliefs and feelings of a school and can be felt in the school’s atmosphere, They should be recognizable when entering the school environment as it should be part of the school’s everyday activities and part of the daily practice of both staff and pupils. School policies are in place to ensure that children are at the centre of everything, reward systems to celebrate achievement in both academic and non-academic areas. There is a school council where pupils’ voices are heard and they can make positive changes to the school, this gives them a sense of pride in the school and enhances the positive atmosphere. Assemblies are led in a way and the school works together .The school has strong links with the local vicar and church family. Through the church, the
Attention need to be is given to individuals that is fair to them, although this can be difficult at times especially when working with groups because children have different varying needs, some children need more support than others, so getting the balance right is essential to give children or young people the opportunity to participate. This can best be achieved by encouraging children and young people to put forward their own ideas, understanding that some pupils may find something’s difficult and need more assurance from you, understanding the needs of all pupils for example a child who has special education needs, will require different levels of support, sitting close to pupils whilst they are working will provide reassurance. Please see TDA 2.6: Help improve on own team practice in schools; Learning outcome 1.1
It is crucial for the team to have regular meetings to enable the staff to implement new ideas or plans, solve problems, discuss, prioritise and accomplish important tasks, which in all will benefit the pupil’s education and school experience.
School assemblies are a good way to constantly remind pupils and staff of what the school and its values represent.

Participating in student council has impacted my life extremely. Running in seventh grade was the best spur impulse decision I have made. I wasn't certain I wanted to run because of previous losses in fifth and sixth grade and how heavyhearted those losses made me. I'm so glad I ended up running. I got interested in student council in fourth grade when I was my closest friends campaign manager when she had run, which kind of sounds frivolous in fourth grade. Even though I was pretty bashful and reserved as a little kid, once I got in middle school, I was ready to finally take a vast step into becoming myself, which for me was being in the student council.
Finally I ensured that pupils trusted that I would be there to help them at all times by reminding them both frequently that if they needed any support or assistance that they just needed to ask. This also meant that pupils worked independently until they required support which is an important part of learning. I also praised pupils regularly for how well they were behaving and carrying out their work which enabled them to feel respected and

The table directly to my left is composed of all freshman. Freshman seem to be concentrated in a very small area, with the tables completely filled. The lunch line is very long, ranging about half the length of the entire cafeteria. The people who are from rural areas are
As teachers, we need to create a comfortable classroom climate where there is a feeling of acceptance and celebrate differences among each student. Effective teachers will also demonstrate appropriate planning, preparing and execution of content. Standard 5 is focused on Middle Level Professional Roles. Along with understanding and applying knowledge of young adolescents, as discussed with Standard 1, it is equally important to be an advocate for the students.
