Parent Forum and Parent Briefing Meetings

Behaviour Policy Jan 2020

 

Our new behaviour Policy is being rolled out in the Spring term.  We hosted a parent forum to discuss this with parents and also explain the concepts that will underpin it.  


The Ethos:- 

 

Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential.


EYFS September 2014

 

Pro - Social behaviour

 

Relating to or denoting behaviour which is positive, helpful, and intended to promote social acceptance
Prosocial behaviour is characterised by a concern for the rights, feelings and welfare of other people
Behaviour which benefits other people or society

 

We will continue to be a school where positives in behaviour are praised.  Our Team points awards have been re-energised.  Our Learning Powers Award will be acknowledged differently.  We want children to behave in a pro-social way and we will support them in this.

 

Voice of the Child

Children are not the people of tomorrow, but are the people of today.

They have a right to be taken seriously, and to be treated with tenderness and respect.

They should be allowed to grow into whoever they are meant to be.

‘The unknown person’ inside each of them is our hope for the future.

                                            

Janusz Korczak (1879 -1942) 

 

Inclusive Setting

This is what we are striving for.  Supporting each child in their own unique way so that they have the same opportunities and chances to succeed in life.

 

 

Students and staff and parents have come to understand fairness solely as equal treatment, giving everyone the same and obsession with standardisation.

 

Treating everyone the same is anything but fair, what equal treatment does is ignore, erase and dismiss our differences and further promote existing privilege.

 

Equality is treating everybody the same

 

Equity is giving everyone what they need to achieve success

 

Any classroom may be made up of any number of learners with differing learning styles including predominantly visual learners, predominantly auditory learners or predominantly tactile learners often referred to as kinaesthetic learners.

 

These learners will process information in very different ways and as such have very different needs.

 

 

Scripts

Staff will be trained and have support in using consistent scripts to all children 

 

This is the script for a restorative conversation

What happened? (tell the story)
What were the people involved thinking and feeling at the time?
Who has been affected and how?
How can we put right the harm?
What have we learnt so as to make a different choice next time?

What would you like to happen next?

How can we make things better for John / you?
If everything was going to be alright, what would need to happen?
How can you help to put this right?
How can we make it OK for you to go back to school / bed etc?
What do you think John might need?

 

For further information please review our Behaviour policy that is in the policies section of the website.  If you wish to discuss this further, please do contact the office to make an appointment.
