Our approach to behaviour management has always been to teach and encourage positive behaviour choices, supporting children’s self-esteem and developing positive relationships across all members of the school community. We will always initially give praise for children who model positive behaviours rather than focusing on unacceptable behaviour.

We hope that by encouraging positive behaviour patterns we can promote good relationships throughout the school built on trust and understanding, supporting all our children in developing a high level of individual and social responsibility. 


The key aims of the school are to continue to promote excellent behaviours: 

  • To create a culture of exceptionally good behaviour: for learning and for life.
  • To ensure that all learners are treated fairly, shown respect and to promote good relationships.
  • To use “affective language” which encourages the learner to engage positively and understand the impact of their behaviour.
  • To help learners take control over their behaviour and be responsible for the consequences of it.
  • To build a community which values kindness, care, good relationships and empathy for others.
  • To ensure that excellent behaviour is a minimum expectation for all.


The approach is simple:

 Our School Rules: 

 Ready, Respectful and Motivated


Ready – to learn.

Respectful – to everyone.

Motivated – to be the best they can be.


The Five Pillars of Practice

Consistent, calm adult behaviour.

First attention for best conduct.

Relentless routines.

Scripting difficult interventions.

Restorative follow up.

Consistency in Practice 

Consistent language


Between staff and learners, simple and clear expectations reflected in all conversations about behaviour. Ready, Respectful, Motivated  

Consistent follow up

Ensuring ‘certainty’ in the classroom, and from all adults.

Consistent positive reinforcement

Routine procedures for reinforcing, encouraging and celebrating appropriate behaviour.

Consistent consequences

Defined, agreed and applied at the classroom level as well as established structures for more serious behaviours

Consistently reinforced routines for behaviour around the school

In classrooms, around the school and playground

Individual Behaviour Plans

Where a child requires additional support to self-regulate, a behaviour plan can be put in place. This will be created between the class teacher, parents or carers and SENCO/SLT, and other professionals if required
