Behaviour & Anti Bullying:

 

"Pupils are polite, respectful and behave well around school and in lessons."    (Ofsted, 2017)         

 "Pupils' understanding of British values and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural education are exceptionally well developed."  (Ofsted, 2017)

BEHAVIOUR:

All staff use every available opportunity to enhance children’s self-esteem. Staff, parents and the wider community encourage all children to adhere to the school rules which are displayed throughout the school. Children are taught to work co-operatively and form sound, respectful relationships. Every member of staff in school has a personal interest in our children and we all seek to educate them to have respect and concern for everyone in our community. We expect excellent behaviour and our children are taught to be polite and courteous. A copy of this policy is available for anyone to read on our website and is available from school. We use a wide range of rewards for good behaviour. Our aim is to raise children’s self-esteem and to enable them to develop and exercise self-discipline and respect for others. We expect children to behave sensibly, thoughtfully and with care for themselves and others in the school community.

We are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all our pupils so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere.

ANTI BULLYING:

 

“Pupils have an exceptionally good understanding of what bullying is and what to do if it happens. They know that bullying should not be tolerated under any circumstances. They say, ‘It is not anti-bullying week, it is anti-bullying year!’ They also say that bullying is very rare in school, and that teachers deal with it swiftly if it does happen".  (Ofsted, October 2017)

 

Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at our school. If bullying does occur, all pupils are taught to tell an adult and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. For information on our anti-bullying strategy, please see the links below:  School starts every school year with a renewed focus on Anti Bullying, and information is shared with all staff, pupils and parents.  This is followed up throughout the year.  Staff act on suspicions and allegations of Bullying immediately, and share this with senior staff as required (usually the Head).  School keeps records of all allegations/suspicions of Bullying, and the Head investigates these personally.  Swift and appropriate action is taken whenever required.  In addition, when any incidents of physical or verbal aggression take place in school, staff complete an 'incident form'.  This information is then passed on to the Head, who cross-references this with any prior incidents to look for any developing patterns, and also checks the Anti-Bullying records in the same way, before filing.
