We believe good behaviour and good discipline benefits all members of the school community. In a well-behaved school pupils are able to make the most of the learning and social opportunities offered to them and teachers are able to devote their time most effectively to teaching.
We believe there are a number of factors associated with good behaviour:
Clear, simple guidelines which all members of the school can understand.
A consistent approach to discipline throughout the school.
Immediate sanctions and rewards related to rules.
High expectations of behaviour.
A positive ethos of mutual respect.
An inclusive ethos.
High self-esteem and positive self-image.
Positive relationships between all members of the school community.
Our aim is to promote good discipline and high standards of behaviour through a coherent, integrated approach which aims a promoting these factors in staff and pupils.
The Positive Behaviour Policy supports and underpins the ethos of the school in supporting all children to achieve their full potential and can be downloaded from the Policies and Documents page.
