Bounds Green is a happy and successful school community because:
· We CHALLENGE every child to be ambitious and achieve success in their learning.
· We VALUE respect and responsibility, individuality and inclusivity, confidence and kindness.
· We NURTURE each unique child to value themselves and develop self-worth in order to thrive in life.
Our behaviour strategy is aimed at improving educational outcomes for all pupils by promoting and supporting their engagement in education. We aim to develop a more positive focus on improving children’s engagement, motivation and well-being.
We believe that self-esteem affects all thinking and behaviour and impacts on learning and performance. We aim to provide positive everyday experiences so that our children are self- confident and secure, with a strong sense of belonging, and so more likely to reach their full potential.
This policy will also:
define what we consider to be unacceptable behaviour, including bullying
Outline how pupils are expected to behave
Summarise the roles and responsibilities of different people in the school community with regards to behaviour management
Outline our system of rewards and sanctions
This policy has been developed through a process of consultation with school staff and Governors. It therefore reflects a common and agreed view of our aims and expectations of behaviour. This document sets out the procedures for rewarding good behaviour and sanctions for inappropriate behaviour.
Our Behaviour Policy is based on choices and consequences and our aims are:
for every member of the school community to feel valued and respected, and for ALL to be treated fairly, through our positive approach
To promote good relationships between teachers, teachers and pupils, teachers and parents and local community, recognising differences and developing caring attitudes to others
To provide an ethos and a safe and secure environment for all our pupils and staff, one in which bullying, discrimination and peer-on-peer abuse – online or face-to-face – are not accepted and are dealt with quickly, consistently and effectively whenever they occur.
To secure consistently positive attitudes to learning so that pupils are happy and can work and learn together to enable them to experience responsible and independent learning and for each individual to attain their maximum potential. We will have high expectations and endeavour to provide access to high quality resources.
teach children behaviour that is appropriate to different situations – provide a range intellectual, social, moral, spiritual and physical experiences appropriate to age, ability and individual needs
raise awareness amongst children of the need to recognise and manage their emotions and reactions
To help our children make informed and responsible decisions throughout their adult life
support children whose behaviour within the school environment is challenging or who may find friendship and co-operation difficult
To have a clear routines and expectations of behaviour across the whole school, modelling what is meant by exemplary behaviour and recognising this and rewarding it.
To be consistent about what is acceptable behaviour, ensuring that all members of the school community work together to apply this consistently and fairly.
Our behaviour policy is implemented in conjunction with other school policies, such as
Equality and diversity policy
Safeguarding Policy and Child Protection Policy
Learning and Teaching Policy
