Code of Conduct & School Rules

Good behaviour and discipline are key foundations for good education. Without an orderly atmosphere effective teaching and learning cannot take place. We expect and insist on the highest standards of behaviour throughout our school.

Courtesy, good manners and consideration for others, together with self discipline and a proper respect for authority, are encouraged at all times and are important if we are to make our school a true, caring community. We place great emphasis on praising children for politeness and kindness to others. Headteacher Awards are given for outstanding work or actions.

The Headteacher will bring any serious breach of discipline or any disruptive behaviour to the attention of the parents concerned and an appropriate course of action will be decided upon.

A copy of the school behaviour and discipline policy is also available from the Headteacher and on our website. Our Code of Conduct and School Rules are explained fully in this. The school ‘Code of Conduct’ is published in the ‘Home and School Books’. The Code of Conduct clearly states what behaviour is acceptable and what is not acceptable, i.e. the school ‘rules’.

All children are expected to make a full contribution to the school and support the positive endeavours of all its members. Rules are essential for the benefit of all in any community and we try to keep these as simple as possible, but we do expect them to be kept. They are:

  • We do what we are asked by members of staff and volunteers.
  • We take responsibility for our own learning and help each other to learn
  • We show respect to other people, their belongings, the classroom and the school environment
  • We walk around the school in a sensible, quiet and safe manner
  • We remember our manners at all times
  • We are always proud of ourselves, our work and our achievements
  • We are kind in our words and our actions
