We expect high standards of behaviour from all pupils and staff, which are encompassed in our school HEART values including the following:
Honesty – to own up when something goes wrong or the wrong choice has been made.
Empathy - through showing care and consideration for others.
Achievement – where we praise and recognise good behaviour.
Respect - towards all people, in manner and tone of voice. We also expect care of property - school, personal, and others.
Teamwork - we encourage everyone to cooperate and show good manners.
In our policy you will read about:
- Why children need to be well behaved at school
- Possible reasons for poor behaviour at school

Our process for behaviour management:
We encourage all of our children to tell an adult if they have had, or are having a problem. All staff will listen sympathetically, investigate sensitively and where appropriate refer the issue on to the Class Teacher, Senior Leader or Headteacher. No issue, however small or large, whether a one off incident or a pattern suggesting bullying will be ignored. We believe passionately that all children are entitled to feel happy and safe in school so our management of behaviour is a crucial part of our job.
Children who make the wrong choices are reminded first and warned again before any sanction is put in place.
