Behaviour Policy


It is a primary aim of our school is that every member of the school community feels valued and respected and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all. The school’s behaviour policy is therefore designed to support the way in which all members of the school can work together in a supportive way. It aims to promote an environment in which everyone feels happy, safe and secure.

The school expects every member of the school community to behave in a considerate and respectful way towards others. We treat all children fairly and apply this behaviour policy in a consistent way.

This policy aims to help children grow in a safe and secure environment and to become positive, responsible and increasingly independent members of the school community.

The school recognizes and promotes good behaviour, as it believes that this will develop an ethos of kindness and cooperation. This policy is designed to encourage good behaviour, rather than merely deter anti-social behaviour.

Role of The Head Teacher

It is the responsibility of the Head teacher to implement the school behaviour policy consistently throughout the school. It is also the responsibility of the Head teacher to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all children in the school.

The Head teacher keeps records of all reported serious incidents of misbehavior including bullying and racism

The Head teacher has the responsibility for giving fixed-term exclusions to individual children for serious acts of misbehaviour. For repeated or very serious acts of anti-social behaviour, the Head teacher may permanently exclude a child. These actions are taken only after the school management have been notified.

Role of The Class Teacher

It is the responsibility of class teachers to ensure that the school rules are enforced in their classes and that their classes behave in a responsible manner during lesson time.

The class teacher should ensure that parents are aware of repeated low level of negative behaviour such as calling out or disrupting the class.

If a child misbehaves repeatedly in class, the class teacher keeps a record of all such incidents. In the first instance, the class teacher deals with incidents him/herself in the normal manner. However, if misbehaviour continues, the class teacher seeks help and advice from the and if necessary the Head teacher.

Promotion Positive Behaviour

We praise and reward children in various ways

The school rules have to be followed to ensure a safe and positive learning environment and we review each situation on an individual basis.

We expect children to listen carefully to instructions in lessons. If they do not do so, we ask them either to move to a place nearer the teacher, or to sit on their own.

We expect children to try their best in all activities. If they do not do so, we may ask them to redo a task, or complete it during playtime.

If behaviour is inappropriate, then a verbal warning is given to the child and the class teacher should explain to the child what he/she is doing that is not acceptable.

If a child is disruptive in class, the teacher reprimands him or her. If a child misbehaves repeatedly, we isolate the child from the rest of the class until she/he calms down, and is able to work sensibly again with others.

If a child repeatedly acts in a way that disrupts or upsets others, the teacher will seek further support from the Head teacher. The school contacts the child’s parents and seeks an appointment in order to discuss the situation, with a view to improving the behaviour of the child.

The school does not tolerate bullying of any kind. If we discover that an act of bullying or intimidation has taken place, we act immediately to stop any further occurrences of such behaviour. While it is very difficult to eradicate bullying, we do everything in our power to ensure that all children attend school free from fear.

Racist incidents will not be tolerated in any form.

Early Years

Teachers, Early Years Practitioners and other adults speak to the children about their conduct, using age appropriate language and try to help the children build an understanding about conduct that is appropriate at school.


Teachers warn children verbally if their conduct is inappropriate.

If behaviour does not improve they are sent to time out for 4 minutes. If calm and returned to expected behaviour the blue strip is removed from the behavior pocket. The time out table is where a pupil can be seated away from classmates for a chance to calm down, reflect or continue their work silently.

If the child is not calm and cooperative after some time at the table, then they can be sent to the Deputy Head teacher.

If there are persistent behaviour issues or incidents with a child the class teacher will speak or send a letter to the parents to meet with the Head teacher or Deputy to talk through ideas for a solution.

We expect all our students to understand and always try their best and never give up, make sure to set a good example to others and always show kindness and treat others the way you would like to be treated. Finally, always tell the truth.


School Rules

The six main school rules were generated by the children for everybody. The school rules are put up in each classroom. They should be revisited with the children at the beginning of each term and at other times when necessary.

The School Rules are as follows:

Class Rules

Class teachers, support staff and children in their class devise these at the beginning of the academic year. They are intended to be guidelines for the sort of behaviour the children and adults would like to see in their classroom. They should focus on the positive rather than the negative.

Rules should be written up neatly and prominently displayed in the classroom
