Behaviour Policy

Positive social and learning behaviours are necessary to promote effective teaching and learning. It is essential that our behaviour systems help to create a well- ordered, calm and respectful environment where children can grow in confidence, feel safe and have the opportunity to learn, achieve and be successful.

We have very high expectations regarding behaviour and aim to develop children’s understanding of the impact of choices they make, whether positive or negative. We understand that behaviour is not automatically learned. Instead, positive behaviours must be modelled, explained, taught, supported and recognised. If we want pupils to behave in a particular way, we are responsible for making it clear to them how we want them to behave. We work closely with parents and carers to provide consistency of modelling and responses to behaviour to best support the children to understand and adapt their behaviour appropriately.

For our behaviour policy to work effectively all teaching and non-teaching staff, parents and governors need to be involved. It is intended that this policy apply throughout the school and at all times, including lunchtime, Breakfast/after school clubs and extra-curricular activities. The governing body will support the school in setting and maintaining the highest standards possible in behaviour management.
