About Us

Principles for good behaviour

  • Good behaviour is an essential condition for effective teaching and learning to take place.
  • Children who are being taught an appropriate inclusive curriculum which is varied and interesting are more likely to:

– experience success as a learner

– feel valued as school members

– want to contribute positively to the school community.

  • Praise and encouragement play a crucial role in meeting our high expectations of children.
  • Rules and consequences are clear; they are explained to the children and are consistently and fairly applied.
  • Children understand that they have a choice in whether they choose to follow the rules or not (responsible for their own actions).
  • Staff have high expectations of all children and are positive role models by demonstrating respectful attitudes towards others at all times.
  • Good behaviour is everyone’s concern and school works in partnership with parents and carers.


  • To build a culture of excellent conduct in class and as a school to ensure that children are happy, secure and safe.
  • To ensure that everyone is treated fairly, shown respect and to promote good relationships.
  • To help children lead disciplined lives and to understand that good citizenship is based on good behaviour.
  • To build a school community which values kindness, care, good humour, mutual respect and empathy for others.
  • To achieve a deeper and long lasting consistency through a focus on values, truths and language.
  • To use good behaviour to promote community cohesion and British values.
