We are aware many of our inherited policies are in need of a refresh. Educational research, Scottish Law, policies and practice have moved on since adopting these policies. Therefore, we are in the process of systematically reviewing our policies.
A move from behaviour management to positive relationships has been underway over the past two years. This started in 2017 with training on attachment theory, nurturing principles and the Clackmannanshire, Readiness for Learning approaches. Staff will be trialling the relationship policy until the end of December 2019. We will also be working with focus group of parents, staff and pupils to consult on the effectiveness of this policy. Any changes required will be reflected in the final policy.
Once adopted this will form the basis of Strathdevon School’s Anti Bullying Policy. It is anticipated this will be published over the course of the 2019/20 session.
Anti Bullying Policy
A working party across Clackmannanshire have created n Anti-Bullying Strategy, in consultation with national bodies, parents, pupils and educators. This can be found here:
This document along with our Relationships Policy and information gathered from our Playground Surveys and Bullying Consultation will be used to inform Strathdevon’s Anti-Bullying Policy. We will be working initially with a group of pupils to develop a child friendly policy linked to our visions and values. Work will begin in November 2019.
