We recognise that good discipline is essential to a successful school and we value the support you can offer as parents. The school focuses on choices, good and bad. Good choices are rewarded, whilst bad choices can lead to sanctions.
Our school behaviour policy aims to encourage a calm working atmosphere with care and consideration shown for others. To this end, we reward with praise, stickers, certificates, class awards, notes home and ‘fabulous Friday’ play for those who work diligently, show respect for others and who care for equipment and the environment.
Children’s achievement is celebrated by the whole school community during Friday Celebration Assemblies, all parents are encouraged to attend.
When misbehaviour occurs children know that a range of sanctions will occur. Information on misbehaviour is shared with parents and if poor behaviour persists, we contact parents with a view to discussing further action. Our experience is that, when a child knows that home and school are working together, problems can be successfully overcome. If damage to school property occurs through inappropriate behaviour, parents are informed. We also request a contribution from parents to meet the cost of repair.
Poor behaviour will not be tolerated and a staged process of seclusion, off-site education and exclusion can occur in extreme circumstances, as a right of the Headteacher. Exclusions from the classroom are used by the school and act as a catalyst for addressing the issues of inappropriate behaviour through collaborative working.
