Rights and responsibilities
We give children choices and make it clear as to the consequences of the choices they make.
Every child has the right to:
• Feel safe and secure in school at all times and in all places in and around the school.
• Be able to get on with work and to play without threat or disruption from others.
• Be treated kindly and sensitively by adults in order that he/she may learn to empathise with others and learn to treat others likewise.
• Understand differences between individuals.
Every child is responsible for:
• Care and consideration towards other people and our school.
• Considering their own actions, reflecting on them and considering strategies to use in the future.
• Adhering to the four ‘Core Values’.
Each member of staff is responsible for:
• Implementing the behaviour policy consistently.
• Modelling positive behaviour.
• Providing a personalised approach to the specific behavioural needs of particular pupils.
• Recording behaviour incidents.
The senior leadership team will support staff in responding to behaviour incidents.
Parents are expected to:
• Support their child in adhering to the school’s behaviour policy and core values
• Inform the school of any changes in circumstances that may affect their child’s behaviour.
• Discuss any behavioural concerns with the class teacher promptly.
The headteacher is responsible for:
• Reviewing and approving this behaviour policy.
• Ensuring that the school environment encourages positive behaviour and that staff deal effectively when inappropriate choices have been made.
• Monitoring how staff implement this policy to ensure rewards and sanctions are applied consistently.
The governors’ local committee is responsible for:
• Monitoring this behaviour policy’s effectiveness and holding the headteacher to account for its implementation.
