Our aim is to create a safe and happy school where everyone feels valued, treated fairly and respected. We aim to teach the children how to understand the impact that inappropriate behaviours can have on one another and how to make better, informed choices.  

Mutual respect and positive behaviour is the expectation for all.

Our policy aims to help children grow in a safe and secure environment, and to become positive, responsible and increasingly independent members of the school community.   


The foundation of our expectations are underpinned by our Values.

We expect all children display positive behaviours. Teachers may offer: positive praise, encouragement and stickers to promote such behaviour.

Children are taught how they are expected to behave and this is represented by our Behaviour Ladder.  These ladders are displayed in classrooms and around the school.  Children understand that each behaviour is represented by a colour.   We expect every child to be displaying green behaviour.  Each class will display what green behaviour looks like and these will form the class expectations. Teachers will regularly explore what these behaviours look like.
