As a church school, the fundamental principles behind our approaches to behaviour are those of reflection, forgiveness, reconciliation and love towards all members of the school community. These sit within our church school values of love, hope, courage, forgiveness, generosity and humility.
Each child is part of our school community and it is each individual's responsibility to make it a place where everyone is able learn and grow in a safe, inclusive, trusting and supportive environment. As Ofsted (November 2019) commented in our most recent report, “Pupils behave consistently well. They are courteous and polite, and older pupils readily help out younger ones.”
We strive to work collaboratively with children, staff and parents, keeping the child at the centre of our approach. This policy aims to set out the agreed approach to celebrating positive behaviour and procedures for dealing with negative behaviour.
