We are very clear about our vision of the culture and character that we expect from our students and staff alike, and this approach underpins everything that we do.
We are first and foremost a community – four Houses in one school, and every student and every member of staff is a member of that community – we all belong and despite our differences and diversity, we all belong to Prospect. Our shared sense of belonging is a key feature of our culture and character.
Secondly, students know and understand that we will give our “first attention to best conduct” – that is, students who are engaged, working hard and contributing to their own and the learning of others will get the most positive attention from their teachers. Those who do not meet our expectations cannot expect the attention of their teacher or classmates. Students can expect to be praised frequently, with just quiet reminders to get back on task. We track rewarding and consequence data on a daily basis so we know how well every student is doing – on average we give out eight times more rewards than consequences!
