and Behaviour Policy
This enables children to become positive, responsible and increasingly independent members of the school community. We have a legal responsibility to promote good behaviour and discipline in our school and it is our expectation that at all times the behaviour of our pupils is excellent, they are safe and protected from harm.
This policy is based on the following beliefs:
- Developing the whole child enables them to take responsibility for their own behaviour by promoting self-discipline and proper regard for authority.
- Providing a welcoming and friendly atmosphere in which the children feel secure and develop the skills to enable them to make the right choices.
- Staff and volunteers set an excellent example to children at all times.
- Encouraging good behaviour and respect for others aims to prevent all forms of bullying among pupils..
- Praise and positive reinforcement is more effective than punishment.
- Good behaviour should be held in high esteem by all members of staff and overtly and consistently rewarded and promoted at all times.
- Good behaviour for learning allows children to work and participate to their full potential, completing assigned work in connection with their education.
- Children should have equal access and opportunity to the curriculum.
- Effective links and co-operation between home and school are essential for success.
- Consistency is the key to success. The positive behaviour management and assertive discipline policy of the school depends upon all staff, teaching and non-teaching, endeavouring to achieve these aims by understanding and being able to implement its procedures.
