How we manage behaviour
We have four school rules that summarise our expectations of adults and children:
- We give respect
- We show kindness
- We act with responsibility
- No matter what, we always try our best.
In the classroom we expect children will demonstrate these by:
- being polite and respectful to everyone, using their manners towards adults and children;
- getting on with their work responsibly and completing their work to the best of their ability;
- keeping all classrooms tidy;
- sharing and using materials sensibly returning them to the appropriate place;
- following the classroom rules;
- letting others get on with their learning;
- listening to and following instructions;
- raising hands to participate at appropriate times;
- helping and supporting your friend;
- not distracting others from their learning;
- being part of a team;
- being a role-model to other children;
- using silent signals to follow instructions.
In the corridors and shared areas we expect children will demonstrate these by:
- respecting other classes when moving to a different area in school;
- showing good manners around school and addressing each other politely on the corridors;
- walkingsensibly on the leftand quietly throughout school;
- holdingdoors open for adults, visitors and other children;
- keepingshared areas & corridors tidy.
In the playground we expect children will demonstrate these by:
- being kind and friendly;
- using appropriate language;
- keeping their hands and feet to themselves;
- playing sensibly and not putting others at risk by selfish actions;
- putting all equipment away carefully in the correct place;
- playing games sensibly without falling out;
- apologising whenthey need to;
- looking after property of the school and of other children;
- solvingproblems together;
- solving disagreements without losing their temper, going through questioning to help to find a solution without resorting to aggression/physical violence.
