“Behaviour is outstanding. Pupils are polite and considerate, and their excellent attitudes to work contribute enormously to their learning”, Ofsted, Feb. 2010
We aim to be positive about good behaviour. By doing this, the children will want to succeed. However, if children do not respond to this approach, we have a range of strategies and sanctions in place to encourage positive attitudes.
Children are expected to keep themselves and the building clean and tidy.
Misbehaviour is normally dealt with by the class teacher through discussion and / or withdrawing privileges. If necessary, more senior members of staff are involved. If poor behaviour persists, children may be placed on ‘Report’ and parents will be invited to discuss ways in which everybody can support the child concerned to bring about an improvement. Children themselves are encouraged to think carefully about the consequences of their actions when things go wrong and via a “Behaviour Recovery Sheet” they reflect on how to bring about an improvement.
Radios, personal stereos, electronic games consoles etc., are not permitted in school. These items together with any which are deemed unsafe may be confiscated on Health & Safety grounds for return to the child’s parents via the school office.
BULLYING, WHETHER VERBAL, EMOTIONAL OR PHYSICAL WILL NOT BE TOLERATED
Occasionally, minor disagreements or disputes cause upsets. Please do let us know urgently if you are aware of problems in order that we can quickly take action.
However, please remember that the school cannot do anything about problems we know nothing about – please talk to us!
