As a school we have high expectations of all of our pupils, staff, governors and the wider school community and have created a school which upholds high standards and clear values.
Parents are informed of our high expectations and are asked to read through, and agree with, our Home-School Agreement.
Our full Behaviour Policy can be found on the Policies webpage.
By having high expectations of behaviour, we aim to enable our pupils to:
- Be healthy
- Stay safe
- Enjoy and achieve in their learning
- Make a positive contribution
- Achieve economic well-being
- Access the full range of learning opportunities in a calm and positive environment
- Achieve through appropriate expectations of work and behaviour with praise, reward and celebration and explicit and consistent consequences
- Behave appropriately in a wide range of social and educational settings
- Value the rights of the individual
- To raise pupils’ self esteem
- To promote/develop empathy and respect for self and others
- To develop in pupils a sense of self discipline and an acceptance of responsibility for their own actions
- To ensure regular attendance
- To develop an awareness of and adherence to appropriate behaviour
- To encourage pupils to value the school environment and its routines
- To ensure that pupils are confident of their right to be treated fairly
- To empower staff to determine and request appropriate behaviour from everyone
- To acknowledge that the maintaining of good behaviour within the school is a shared responsibility
- To ensure that positive behaviour is always recognised
- To ensure the policy is fully understood and is consistently implemented throughout the school
- To ensure effective mechanisms are in place for the monitoring and evaluation of this policy
- To ensure the rights and responsibilities of all members of the school community
Within our policy we explain how we encourage and celebrate positive behaviour as well as detailing how we deal with any misbehaviour, including any steps we would take to work with parents to improve behaviour if this was needed.
Although as a school, we will work hard not to use exclusions as part of our Behaviour Management strategies, this does sometimes need to be the case. This is extremely rare at our school and we have only had one exclusion within the last 10 years.
Our belief is that by providing an enjoyable, stimulating and wide curriculum which also includes as many outdoor opportunities as possible, that children will thrive by being at our school and will want to be a part of all that is on offer and be ambassadors of the school both in school and when visiting other places.
We are very proud of the behaviour in our schools and always follow any concerns from parents up immediately, providing feedback when appropriate.
