The ethos and values of the school underpin the pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural and social development through the curriculum and other activities.
In a school such as ours, all children are encouraged to feel part of the caring ‘family’ of the school. From the very youngest to those on the threshold of secondary school, they are encouraged to care about one another and about their school environment, and to value each other as individuals.
We aim to maintain good discipline through a combination of firmness and fairness. Children are required to behave properly and politely and are expected to show respect for others. Disruptive behaviour or bullying is not tolerated. However, we do appreciate that amongst school children unpleasantness sometimes occurs. Any problems will be discussed with parents and their co-operation will be sought in dealing with significant or recurrent unacceptable behaviour from pupils.
The school has well-established and clear expectations of behaviour. Pupils say that “behaviour in school is good because they have drawn up the rules and so are eager to stick to them.” The school’s records of parents’ views indicate that they are overwhelmingly positive about the behaviour and safety of pupils in the school.
