BehaviourWe are proud that our school provides a happy and caring environment for the children to work in, and believe that children experience the most freedom when they are aware of, and abide by, a few clear rules. The behaviour of our children in school is good. Their actions show how we value supporting and caring for each other to create the ethos and culture that visitors notice as soon as they enter the school. We constantly look for opportunities to praise and reward the children. Our rewards not only concentrate on academic results but also the attributes of helpfulness, politeness and tidiness, which we hold in high regard. When a child falls below the standards expected we initiate a clear and fair discipline procedure and work closely with our parents to ensure that any problems are solved at a very early stage.
A quote from our SIAS inspection states,
"Because pupils are valued and their wellbeing is at the heart of the school, they have very positive attitudes towards school, saying that they make good friendships and trust their teachers to look after them and help them. This has created an environment in which the pupils want to behave well because it is the natural thing to do, rather than having to be told to do so. There is therefore a great level of care for each other."
Home-School AgreementThis highlights the shared responsibilities of all who have a vested interest in the education and welfare of the children – children, parents and school staff. All parties sign the agreement each year.
