Children thrive in an environment that has clear boundaries and is fair. An environment where they are given the tools to recognise when they have really tried hard and also when they have made a poor choice.
Children behave well when they are stimulated and engaged in quality learning opportunities and when they are appropriately challenged.
We use our ‘5 Rs’ to be respectful towards one another, to take responsibility for our actions, to be resourceful in how to manage situations, to be resilient in times of difficulty and challenge and to reflect on their actions.
Effective communication between all staff members and a consistent approach ensures that positive behaviour is promoted and celebrated.
Children recognise our high expectations for behaviour. We use the ‘Good to be Green’ scheme to encourage the best behaviour for learning. We celebrate the achievements of children during weekly assemblies highlighting outstanding learning and linking it to our school aims.
Persistent poor behaviour is always discussed with parents in order to agree an effective approach to resolving the problem. Experience shows that when parents work in partnership with the school, the outcome for children is always more successful.
