Our general expectation is that children behave with respect and care towards other people and property.
We aim to establish a sense of community where every member has a duty and responsibility to treat others in a sensitive and unselfish way. There are specific rules which all children are expected to follow: not fighting; not upsetting other children; not using bad language; interrupting learning or interfering with the property of others’. Those children who show a lack of respect or care, or break school rules, will be dealt with firmly but fairly. Should this not produce improved behaviour, parents will be involved in the next steps. If the school has any concerns about your child’s behaviour we will contact you.
The school behaviour and anti-bullying policy is available for all parents.
In short: All children are considered to be at level 0. Great - keep it up!
A pupil being watched more closely becomes Level 1. Parents will be informed by text. This level is not too serious but raises awareness of a concern.
At Level 2, parents are informed; pupils meet a named TA (Teaching Assistant) on a daily basis and have a behaviour target card. This operates as an individual behaviour plan.
At Level 3, the same happens as at level 2, BUT there is now a serious risk of at least fixed term exclusion. The pupil now meets with the Headteacher or Deputy several times a day.
At Level 4, similar to level 3, but the child has already been excluded for a fixed period and now meets with the Headteacher or Deputy several times a day with internal exclusion a likely consequence of unacceptable behaviour.
The final step is permanent exclusion which, sadly (but rarely), has been used by the Headteacher.
Please understand the policy is designed to support children. Achievable targets are set to ensure regular success. Parents are informed when moving to a lower level following regular 4 weekly reviews.
Effort levels are also issued with an identical procedure. Bullying is not tolerated. We investigate all suggestions of bullying quickly and thoroughly. A Daily Events Diary is used to track and correct incidents promptly.
