Jesus said:

 ".... love your neighbour as you love yourself."

Luke Ch. 10 v.27

General Principles

  • We have high, but not unrealistic, expectations for standards of behaviour. We aim for a relaxed environment but with strong, safe, clear behaviour expectations and boundaries.
  • We have a very positive school ethos, paying as much attention to good behaviour as we do to inappropriate behaviour.
  • When unacceptable behaviour is identified we make clear to the child that it is the behaviour we dislike not the child. Our approach is to ask the child three questions:
    1. ‘What happened?' (encouraging an honest response even if they have done something wrong)
    2. ‘What are you going to do to put things right?' (encouraging a sense of responsibility)
    3. ‘How are you going to ensure that this does not happen again?' (accountability - it is not an option for the inappropriate behaviour to become a habit)
  • We expect all adults to behave courteously towards each other and all of the children on site, setting a good example.
  • Children are expected to behave courteously towards each other and to show respect, at all times, towards every adult in the school. Fighting/kicking/pushing are strictly forbidden.
  • Class teachers work with the children at the start of each academic year to devise their own class rules and principles, in accordance with this policy and give due regard to the rights detailed below, to ensure that their classrooms function efficiently and to ensure the welfare and maximum attainment of all the children.
