We encourage the children to exercise self-discipline and consideration for others. We encourage and celebrate good manners and politeness shown by our children both within the school and during visits away from school. We pride ourselves on our whole school approach to positive discipline.
Although rare, any reported incident of bullying in the school is taken very seriously and is dealt with in accordance with our behaviour management policy. Copies are available from the school Office or via our policies page.
Good behaviour is rewarded in an age appropriate way through:
- Star Tickets for good citizenship
- Privilege Points
- Privilege Time
- A ‘Star of the Week’ as celebrated in our weekly ‘Stars Assembly’.
- An invitation to the ‘Top Table’ on a Friday lunchtime.
If a child does not comply with school rules they are given a warning. If the poor behaviour continues the class teacher and/or the Head of School will contact parents as appropriate. In very rare and serious cases formal exclusion procedures may be invoked.
The school has a ‘zero tolerance’ policy on bad language. Parents are always informed, either verbally or in writing if a child has been using inappropriate language in school.
