Behaviour in school is very good and has been consistently praised by OfSTED. This has come about by consistently expecting high standards, every child knowing what is expected and what the consequences are if the expectations are not met, and hard work.

The children are encouraged to respect themselves and each other, a message that is reinforced constantly in school.

When things go wrong, the children know that the school will work hard to resolve the issue and be determined, consistent and fair whilst doing so. Through this approach, we are able to have an open dialogue with children and they feel very comfortable about discussing their problems and worries, knowing that they will be listened to and any appropriate action will be taken.

Our Behaviour policy has been developed by guidance, provided by the local authority, on schools’ legal obligations and has been informed by the Department for Education’s documents

  • Behaviour and discipline in schools (DfE: January 2016)
  • Use of reasonable force: Advice for headteachers, staff and governing bodies’ (DfE: July 2013)
  • Searching, screening and confiscation; Advice for headteachers, school staff and governing bodies (DfE: Feb 2014)

Our policy seeks to clearly identify school practice in relation to promoting positive behaviour and improving behaviour – where it falls below school expectations. The policy also outlines the school’s use of sanctions in line with statutory guidelines including the Equity Act (2010) in respect of safeguarding and pupils with special educational needs.

Our Behaviour Policy reflects the school’s vision: we look to the stars, and our guiding principles that:

  • Everyone can learn
  • Everyone can achieve
  • Everyone belongs

In terms of behaviour, these principles are upheld by three expectations that are demonstrated by every member of the school community:

  • Be Safe
  • Be Kind
  • Be Respectful
