Our School Core Values were written with the children, governors, staff and parents/carers. They are displayed around our school and are referred to frequently so that we live and breath them.
Children are expected to be respectful and behave in a way that allows learning to flourish throughout the school. We recognise that the development of a positive approach towards behaviour that is conducive to learning is a partnership between home and school. We encourage behaviour for learning by acknowledging it in many ways. Each class has their own ‘Growth garden’ with all the children’s names, we encourage the children using the growth mindset characters to display positive learning behaviours and these are celebrated in assemblies on a Friday. Children who have been spotted being helpful, considerate, hardworking, or especially kind are nominated for a ‘Wise monkey’ at assembly on Fridays.
At the same time, we firmly believe that all forms of anti-social behaviour, including vandalism, bullying, disruption and racism, are not acceptable. Therefore should a disciplinary or behavioural problem arise, the school operates a Behaviour for Learning policy which enables us to deal with it. It may be that your child has to move their name onto the cloud, or that your child has to work during part of their play time, or that classroom privileges might be withdrawn. In more serious cases, the child might be sent to another member of staff or the Headteacher and if we feel it is necessary we may contact parents/carers to discuss the matter further.
