As a selective school, BSK has very high academic expectations of its students. Recognising that a student’s attitude to learning is often the key to success, the school decided to implement SIMS to help reward students for behaviour and achievement.
To encourage students to try their hardest, a policy of awarding positive behaviour points in each lesson was introduced, supported by SIMS Behaviour Management and SIMS Lesson Monitor. This made the process of awarding positive house points very straightforward, with a simple right click on the name of the student on the electronic register.
SIMS has also helped the school to overcome the fundamental drawback of their previous paper system. “We don’t have really big behaviour problems,” says Nicholas Smith, Assistant Headteacher. “But some low level incidents were slipping by. They were hidden among the mass of paper. Now it is easy to track behaviour patterns across subjects and teachers are pleased that issues are being dealt with much more quickly by year heads.”
