A school is like a small community in itself, with everyone working, playing and living together. We consider a certain amount of social training is necessary for a child to play his/her part in a caring society and we feel that thoughtfulness, courtesy and good manners are very desirable qualities. Therefore; it is important that each member shows consideration to others and that visitors and members of the public outside school form a good impression. We expect outstanding behaviour at all times and expect our staff to lead by example. Our staff create a positive learning environment to support behaviour management and staff follow the behaviour policy system of traffic lights.

We expect the children to follow our six golden rules:

  1. Treat each other with care, good manners and respect.
  2. Listen to others.
  3. Move around school in a sensible manner.
  4. Try our best in everything we do.
  5. Be honest.

All staff and children have signed an agreed School Charter.The Charter highlights our school expectation regarding movement around school and how we respect each other. The Charter and any further information regarding behaviour, can be viewed in our behaviour policy.
