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.
Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential.
Pro - Social behaviour
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)
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.
Staff will be trained and have support in using consistent scripts to all children
This is the script for a restorative conversation

We acknowledge and support the role of parents to make our school a positive and successful learning environment.
To launch our 2019 - 2020 Academic year we will be hosting two meetings on 12 September 2019 - either 2.30pm or 7pm. At this meeting we will be explaining what our Intent for our Curriculum will be, we want to explain how our School development plan will be used to drive standards and enjoyment for the children. By understanding our vision and direction, we believe that this will strengthen the links we have with our village and parent community. Please do attend.
(There will be a raffle ticket offered to every family who attends - on offer are family tickets to local attractions and a £50 gift token)
Another new development this year will be the establishment of a Parent Forum. (This was suggested by our Parent Governors - Steve and Lisa) The first meeting will be 23rd September 2019 at 2.30pm.
