We have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour both in the classroom and in the playground. Children’s achievements, in their attitude, behaviour and work are celebrated in our weekly achievement assemblies. We believe behaviour is too important to be left to chance - it is a taught part of our curriculum. Behaviour is regularly discussed and teachers establish a set of rules within the classroom which children are expected to keep. These concern matters such as respect and consideration.
All children need the opportunity to make mistakes - we learn from our mistakes - and so the majority of playground incidents are dealt with internally. This may involve sanctions such as missing playtimes or extra work. However, where children are having persistent difficulties with managing their behaviour, and if the problem continues to cause concern, we aim to work with parents to improve the situation. This may include setting targets or working towards agreed rewards; where possible the emphasis is on making positive changes. Further information can be found in our Behaviour Policy and Anti-Bullying Strategy (see School Policies section).
