Behaviour Policy

We have a duty under the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 to have in place a behaviour policy that is consistent throughout the school.

We believe that we promote good behaviour by creating a happy caring school environment where everyone feels valued,respected,secure and free from all forms of anti-social behaviour. We encourage pupils to achieve in a learning environment where self-discipline is promoted and good behaviour is the norm.

We believe pupils will achieve their full potential in a happy, stimulating and ordered school environment.

We acknowledge the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 that clearly states that all maintained schools must have in place an Anti-Bullying Policy that outlines procedures in order to prevent bullying among pupils. We have a duty of care to protect pupils from bullying as part of our responsibility to provide a safe, secure, caring and friendly school environment for all the children in order to protect them from those who wish to deliberately hurt them either physically or emotionally. We believe all our safeguarding procedures are in line with Sections 3(5) and 87(1) of the Children Act 1989 and Section 157 of the Education Act 2002 and that we promote the welfare of all children in our care.

Under no circumstances will we tolerate any form of bullying and all incidents of bullying will be dealt with promptly and effectively.
