We listen to children’s and parents voices. Our school behaviour policy is clear that children are expected to contribute and cooperate.


The rule of law

We consistently reinforce our high expectations of children. Children are taught the value and reasons behind our rules that they are there to protect us that everyone has a responsibility and that there are consequences when rules are broken.


Individual Liberty

Within school children are actively encouraged to make choices knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. As a school we educate and provide boundaries for the children to make choices safety, through our provision of a safe environment and teaching. Children are encouraged to know understand and exercise these rights and personal freedoms.


Mutual respect

Part of our school ethos is around Respect and children are modelled this by caring, sharing and listening to others. Staff help children to understand how to respect by talking about how actions / words can affect others.


Tolerance of those Different Faiths and Beliefs

We aim to enhance children’s understanding of different faiths and beliefs by participating in range of celebrations throughout the year. Children have the opportunity to dress up in clothes and try different foods from other cultures and we encourage parents / carers to participate and support our multi-cultural events.
