Behaviour Policy Governors’ Statement of Principles

  • School staff and pupils should show respect for one another.
  • All members of the school community should be listened and responded to.
  • All members of the school community should be entitled to work and learn in a safe and secure environment.
  • All members of the school community should always be considerate towards the learning needs of each individual and supportive of the school as a learning community.
  • Good behaviour should be acknowledged and sanctions should always be applied consistently, for unacceptable behaviour.
  • Pupils whose behaviour and attendance may deteriorate through events outside of school, should be identified and supported.
  • Pupils joining the school with pre-existing behaviour issues, will always be supported with appropriate strategies.
  • All school staff should model positive behaviour and promote it through active development of pupils’ social, emotional and behavioural skills.   Pupils should act appropriately, on school visits, sports events and special events in school.
  • All members of the school community should understand and accept the principles on which the behaviour policy is grounded.
  • Pupils should not feel they are being treated differently because of their background, circumstances, gender, abilities or disabilities; the school Behaviour Policy should be applied in a way that is transparently even-handed.
