Behaviour and Expectations
We believe in celebrating our achievements, as this inspires our school community to strive for excellence.
High standards of behaviour are expected from adults and children at all times and we encourage children to develop self-discipline and self-control. They are given carefully planned opportunities to take responsibility for their own behaviour and learning. We help children to resolve their differences and conflicts in constructive ways so that they may learn the skills to do so independently. Our emphasis is on ownership of actions, reconciliation and forgiveness.
We encourage children to report all incidents of name-calling, including racist names, violence or bullying. These incidents are taken very seriously, dealt with swiftly and are recorded.
Each Friday, we have a Celebration Assembly. During our assembly children who have done something extra special can earn a certificates and awards They then have their successes shared with the school community.
If there is a cause for concern, staff will issue orange or red zone letters via Class Charts and parents will be asked to arrange a meeting with the Headteacher.
As of September 2020, school will frequently communicate with parents about behaviour and rewards using Class Charts.
