Good behaviour is central to a good education.
Our behaviour management policy enables this and is characterised by particular emphasis on:
- unconditional positive regard – all individuals are valued equally by the whole school community;
- the development of self-control;
- the need to manage feelings in a way that enables positive choices to be made;
- the consequences of actions – both positive and negative.
It is based on the principles of restorative justice and has restorative approaches at the heart of its philosophy.

We expect the children to behave in a reasonable manner - to be courteous and considerate towards others. Children are constantly reminded to consider the consequences of their actions on themselves and others. We expect parents to work with us in enabling the children to manage their behaviour in a way that is constructive and conducive to a positive learning environment.
At the beginning of each school year the Headteacher negotiates a Code of Behaviour with the children during whole school assemblies. Copies are sent home to parents to discuss with their children and are also displayed around the school. Our Code of Behaviour is the basis of our Behaviour Policy. Each week the Headteacher leads the Golden Learning Assembly where children's work, effort and care for others are celebrated with the whole school.
