Behaviour

“Recent focused work by leaders to improve behaviour has been successful. Pupils behave well throughout the school. They are courteous and respectful.

When pupils need guidance to improve their behaviour, staff provide good support and role modelling. Pupils are confident that if any unkindness or bullying happens, adults will listen to pupils and help them resolve any problems.” Ofsted October 2019.

We aim to encourage mutual respect between children, parents and staff. Out of this mutual respect, a child’s self-discipline and sense of responsibility can grow.  We celebrate good behaviour and thereby encourage the children to develop self-esteem and self-discipline.

Children are taught to behave in a manner which contributes to a comfortable working environment for themselves, their peers, the staff, helpers and visitors to the school.

The Golden Rules are a simple way of expressing to children our expectations and when necessary they act as a gentle reminder.

  • We always try to do our best.
  • We look after everything around us
  • We listen carefully and wait for our turn to speak
  • We walk inside school
  • We look after ourselves and keep ourselves safe
  • We are respectful, friendly and kind to others

If there is behaviour which can be described as unacceptable the matter will be dealt with by the member of staff present in the first instance. Class teachers may ask to speak to parents if they feel it will help resolve the issue.  More serious incidents or persistent misbehaviour will be reported to the head teacher who will speak to the child and inform the parents as necessary.

Bullying, including name-calling, aggressive or threatening behaviour and damage to property is never acceptable and incidents are dealt with straight away.

Similarly, racist incidents will be dealt with straight away and we will follow the recommended procedures of the Local Authority and the MacPherson Report.
