Positive Behaviour

We follow our Code of Behaviour policy for promoting positive behaviour across the school. At the centre of our school’s Code of Behaviour is an anti-bullying ethos which focuses on respect for each individual. We refer to the Code of Behaviour on a regular basis and apply its values in everyday school life.

This policy aims to:

  • creating a climate that encourages and reinforces good behaviour
  • creating a positive and safe environment for teaching and learning
  • encouraging students to take personal responsibility for their learning and their behaviour
  • helping young people to mature into responsible participating citizens
  • building positive relationships on mutual respect and mutual support among students, staff and parents
  • ensuring that the school's high expectations for the behaviour of all the members of the school community are widely know and understood
We foster a restorative approach across our school which supports our positive school climate. This approach means that we focus on building and maintaining positive relationship, nurturing connections and if needed repairing relationships in a healthy and fair way where the voice of each individual is heard. We follow the following restorative questions when dealing with issues that arise to focus on restoring and repairing the relationships of those involved.
  1. What happened?
  2. What were you thinking of at the time?
  3. What have you thought about since?
  4. Who has been affected and in what way?
  5. How could things have been done differently?
  6. What do you think needs to happen next?
