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. Information relating to understanding behaviour is attached to this document.
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/Tea Time clubs and extra-curricular activities. The governing body will support the school in setting and maintaining the highest standards possible in behaviour management.
Behaviour and Safety is inspected by Ofsted during school inspections. Following the school’s most recent inspection (January 2015), the Behaviour and Safety of pupils was judged to be ‘good’.
Pupils conduct themselves well in lessons and at different times of the day. They are polite and respectful to staff and to one another. (Ofsted January 2015)
