Safeguarding, Care and Behaviour

All staff exercise a duty of care to the children. We have strict Safeguarding practices with regard to recruitment of staff and when dealing with any child protection issue. For all child protection procedures please refer to our Safeguarding Policy that can be found on our website.

The school aims to encourage children to develop self discipline in their work and behaviour and to accept responsibility for their own actions. Within an orderly, relaxed and friendly atmosphere, learning will take place more effectively. We believe in a positive approach, encouraging good behaviour and attitudes by rewarding and praising wherever possible. Behavioural expectations are made clear to everyone in school and applied consistently by all staff.

Children displaying inappropriate behaviour are given the opportunity to modify their behaviour and learn from their mistakes.

We do not have school rules but we operate a ‘Rights and Responsibilities’ ethos where all children know what their rights are in school and what their responsibilities are – making clear the expectations for behaviour.
