We expect good behaviour from all of our children, enabling them to be safe and happy whilst at school. Self-discipline is our ultimate aim and it is hoped that children will learn to respect each other and show tolerance to all within our community.
However, if children have to be sanctioned, they are attended to by the class teacher in the first instance, or if necessary by a senior member of staff, including the Headteacher. If a child persistently offends, we will contact parents/carers and arrange a meeting to discuss the behaviour and work together to help the child.
Good behaviour is promoted on a daily basis through the use of "The Golden Rules." These rules, which are adopted school-wide, seek to reinforce the principals of behaviour which create a happy and safe learning environment.
"The behaviour of pupils is good. Pupils have positive attitudes to learning. They are polite and friendly. They are confident in making their views known and takep ride in their school."
Good behaviour is actively encouraged and positive reinforcement is used by all. Current strategies include: Weekly 'Circle Time' sessions, pastoral support, 'Star of the Week' celebratory assemblies, themed days promoting self-discipline and use of a school wide house point system.
'The Golden Rules'
We are gentle
We are kind and helpful
We are honest
We work hard
We look after our property
The staff work together to make explicit behavioural expectations and put in place strategies to ensure the positive and appropriate behaviour of our children at all times.
Further details can be found in the Behaviour for Learning Policy available on this website or via the school office.
Any form of bullying is not tolerated. All incidents are rare and are investigated and dealt with by the Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher.
"Pupils feel safe and happy at school.
They report that all staff are always there for them
and listen to their views about how to improve the school."
