Behaviours for Learning

To learn effectively and for others in the class to learn, we need to ensure that pupils’ behaviours are appropriate in school. We consistently model the excellent behaviours around school within the culture of mutual respect. As a school community we encourage pupils to believe in their abilities and know that they are cared for, respected and their attainments, participation and progress celebrated. We have a range of rewards and incentives to promote good behaviour, self-discipline and respect including stickers, certificates and weekly praise book comments. When things occasionally ‘go wrong’ we give time for children to reflect on their actions (completing a ‘think sheet’) and make a plan for turning things around and returning to learning. Our school saying of ‘no hands, no feet and no bad language’ ensures a consistent approach to behaviour management and a common language for children and adults alike. Our principles of behaviours we expect are documented in our policies.
