A partnership between the school and parents is required in order to ensure the best possible standard of pupil conduct. Pupils are expected to set themselves high standards in appearance and behaviour. School rules are relatively simple and few in number to allow for the smooth running of the school. The general aim is to produce an atmosphere of friendly co-operation, encouraging respect and consideration for other persons and other property.
A calm, orderly classroom environment is a pre-requisite for effective learning and teaching. Disruptive behaviour in the classroom deprives other pupils of the opportunity to learn and will not be tolerated. Staff have therefore been instructed to ensure that a disruptive pupil is removed promptly from the class and sent to the Depute Head teacher, where arrangements will be made for the pupil to continue work under supervision.
Removal from class for disruptive behaviour will always result in a formal referral report, an interview with the Head Teacher, a note to parents and, in most cases, a period of detention at morning interval or lunchtime.
Behaviour at morning intervals and lunchtimes can be more difficult to monitor, but most problems can be dealt with in a similar way to those that arise in the classroom i.e. prompt intervention and appropriate sanctions.
Where a pattern of persistent negative behaviour develops, this will require additional measures of intervention and support from the pupil support team, parents and, where appropriate, specialist services and external agencies.
School Golden Rules
Each primary classroom has a copy of our Golden Set of Rules with the rewards and consequences. At the beginning of each year the teacher and the class will talk over our set of rules, which helps promote good order and discipline.
These rules will be posted on the classroom walls for all to see. We seek your help in supporting these aims and we actively support the partnership between home and school as we know this is the best foundation for your child to succeed at school
|Do be kind and helpful||
|Do work hard||
|Do look after property||Do not waste or damage things|
|Do listen to people||Do listen to people|
|Do be honest||Do not cover up the truth|
- In the secondary department we have a Classroom Code of Conduct that we expect all pupils to follow. This code may be summarised as the 3R’s :
- Respect for myself
- Respect for others
- Respect for property and environment
The whole school positive behaviour policy is very important to us and it will be reviewed on a regular basis.
