Behaviour Policy

Behaviour Policy 2016

As God’s children, we touch the lives of others through our thoughts, words and actions.

John 13: 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

GOOD Behaviour, GOOD Manners and GOOD work

Behaviour Policy Introduction

We aim for a high standard of behaviour and respect, recognising and regarding children for both academic and non-academic achievements believing that a positive approach encourages everyone to give of their best.

We are aware that we share responsibility for the children in our care and make every effort to provide the same level of care which any responsible parent would be expected to give.

We expect that parents will have taught their children to respect other people’s feelings and property. Parents play the most important role in teaching children how to behave in an acceptable manner and this begins at home. School continues to reinforce positive values in conjunction with home. We aim to ensure that good models of behaviour are rewarded and that inappropriate behaviour is dealt with firmly but fairly.

Our policy is framed in such a way as to encourage and reinforce courteous and civilised behaviour; every opportunity is taken to support self-discipline, whereby pupils are personally involved and accept responsibility for their own actions and behaviour.
