Good behaviour is central to all we do at Roby Park Primary School. High standards of behaviour will be expected and promoted at all times in lessons and throughout every aspect of the school’s life. All members of staff will set high standards and pupils will be given clear guidance about what is expected of them. The school rules will be learnt and followed by all and reward and sanctions will be used to underpin and reinforce good behaviour. We will work in partnership with parents and carers to ensure that the school’s vision and values become central to the lives of learners.
Roby Park Primary School is a safe, secure and supportive school where children are:
- Encouraged to develop positive attitudes about themselves and others.
- Given opportunities to develop a self-discipline recognising the importance of courtesy, good manners, tolerance and respect.
- Supported to meet expectations and targets set in line with our class, school and behaviours for learning criteria.
- Provided with opportunities to develop resilience and independence skills in order to tackle and resolve conflict fairly, positively and respectfully.
- Prepared to live and work happily amongst members of our school family and community in order to become responsible members of society.
- Able to celebrate successes and support with their families who will work alongside the school to support and uphold our school rules, rewards and sanctions in line with this guidance set out in this policy.
The success of our school relies on the communication and co-operation of everyone involved in the life of our school.
We recognise that good behaviour, high expectations and positive attitudes to learning need to be taught and that children need to develop good self esteem in order to maximise their potential to meet the learning and social experiences in a school environment. Children will be expected to have regard for their good behaviour on all occasions, including when attending events or on educational visits, when wearing the school uniform and when on the school premises and in the local community.
Children need to feel secure in the expectations of the school and of the rewards and sanctions they can expect. They need to come into school prepared by parents/carers for the demands that will be made upon them in a school based learning situation. Good behaviour can continue to develop when school and home share the same standards where each appreciate the others’ point of view and when both support each other in achieving these goals.
The Single Equality Act which came into place Oct 1st 2010 brought together the Public Sector Equality Duties (PSED) which reflected “protected characteristics”. This policy supports all of the equality strands which are now called “protected characteristics”: age, disability, gender, gender-identity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation. In this school we will ensure that at every level, in all our work and throughout all aspects of the school community and its life, all will be treated equally.
