Behaviour Management Policy for
After School Club / Holiday Camps
Treasure Boxing Club will endeavour to provide an orderly and secure environment, conducive to learning, which will allow for the physical, emotional and intellectual development of each pupil. The rules are designed to develop qualities of self-respect, self-discipline and respect for other people and their property. A high standard of conduct, courtesy and good manners is expected.
It is Treasure Boxing Club policy to approach the management of behaviour as positively as possible and to treat all children and staff with dignity and respect.
Treasure Boxing Club uses effective behaviour management strategies to promote the welfare and enjoyment of children attending the class/camp. Working in partnership with parents, we aim to manage behaviour using clear, consistent and positive strategies.
The club/camp’s designated member of staff responsible for behaviour management is the Head Coach.
When attending the club or camp, we expect children to:
Use socially acceptable behaviour
Respect one another, accepting differences of race, gender, ability, age and religion
Develop their independence by maintaining self-discipline
Choose and participate in a variety of activities
Ask for help if needed
Enjoy their time at the Club/Camp
Respect the authority of all staff
Respect the dignity of fellow children / young people and show understanding and tolerance of their differences
Avoid using any form of vulgar or abusive language
Refrain from bullying and report any instances of bullying immediately
Behave with politeness, holding doors when appropriate and giving way to adults
Not make physical contact with another person outside or a sporting context.
Use mobile phones only if permission from a member of staff is given first
To show due care and respect for the grounds and property, children will:
Use the numerous litter bins provided
Eat and drink in the designated areas only at break and lunch-time
Not chew chewing gum
Not deface buildings, furniture and equipment
Not participate in any form of vandalism, including abuse of sports or resources
Not interfere with any safety equipment.
Encouraging positive behaviour
Whilst at club/camp positive behaviour is encouraged by:
Staff acting as positive role models
Praising appropriate behaviour
Informing parents about individual achievements
Offering a variety of play opportunities to meet the needs of the children attending the Camp
It is inevitable that as children develop and learn, there are times when they need support and guidance to understand that their behaviour is not acceptable. Staff at the Club/Camp will try to determine the cause or triggers of the inappropriate behaviour to prevent the situation from recurring.
Dealing with inappropriate behaviour
Challenging behaviour will be addressed in a calm, firm and positive manner.
In the first instance, the child will be temporarily removed from the activity.
Staff will discuss why the behaviour displayed is deemed inappropriate.
Staff will give the child an opportunity to explain their behaviour, to help prevent a recurrence.
Staff will encourage and facilitate mediation between children to try to resolve conflicts through discussion and negotiation.
Staff will consult with parents or carers to formulate clear strategies for dealing with persistent inappropriate behaviour.
If after consultation with parents and the implementation of behaviour management strategies, a child continues to display inappropriate behaviour, the Club/Camp leader may decide to exclude the child. The reasons and processes involved will be clearly explained to the child.
Physical intervention will only be used as a last resort, when staff believes that action is necessary to prevent injury to the child or others, or to prevent significant damage to equipment or property. If a member of staff has to physically restrain a child, the managing director will be notified and an Incident
record will be completed. The incident will be discussed with the parent or carer as soon as possible.
If staff are not confident about their ability to contain a situation, they should contact the managing director or, in extreme cases, the police.
All serious incidents will be recorded on an Incident record and kept in the child’s file. This may be used to build a pattern of behaviour, which may indicate an underlying cause. If a pattern of incidents indicates possible abuse, we will implement child protection procedures in accordance with our Safeguarding policy.
When signing up to a Club/Camp you are agreeing to this behaviour policy.
