At Calside Primary School, we employ an assertive discipline policy with four fundamental beliefs:
- All pupils have a right to learn.
- All adults have a right to be able to do their job.
- All adults have a responsibility to promote good behaviour.
- All children can behave.
The policy was updated by pupils, the Parent Council and staff in November 2019 in line with national guidance, and was shared with parents accordingly: Behaviour-Policy-Nov-2019 This policy incorporates the national Respectme guidance on anti-bullying. All the classes have explored the themes within the policy during class lessons on Health & Wellbeing. As part of this learning, the upper classes designed leaflets for their parents.
This year, we have switched our Learning Passports from paper copies to an electronic version. Each class has their own learning page where you can find class newsletters, homework guidance and information about our learning. Each child then has their own passport linked to this which is password-protected. This passport contains the child’s current learning targets as well as information about their wide achievements, and parents are encouraged to add photos/ videos/ text to these passports so we can all celebrate successes. The teacher may also use this to inform parents of any issues with behaviour at school, or indeed examples of excellent behaviour.
