We want to have the highest expectations for the children in our community to help them be successful at school and in the future. We want to support children to be the best version of themselves and to help them make good choices in lessons and around school. We want them to do the ‘right thing’ because it is the ‘right thing to do’.
We want children to feel safe around school. By having high expectations and clear systems in place we hope to keep any negative experiences to a minimum, to reduce bullying and to ensure that children have a positive experience at lunchtimes. A clear behaviour policy makes the school a happier, kinder place.
We want children to be able to focus and learn in lessons, without disturbances. High expectations and a clear behaviour system will allow this to happen. Students will be able to make good progress as a result, achieving the best for themselves.
Finally, the purpose of our behaviour policy is to help prepare and develop our students for the world beyond school. To support them to become strong and confident individuals who will succeed and thrive in the world of work. To support this message, we no longer have school ‘rules’ and instead we will be focusing on ‘Employment Standards’ to link positive actions and habits to the future success they will bring. Employment standards are based on key work skills that everyone needs.
What are our ‘Employment Standards’?
There are six ‘Employment Standards’ designed to help support students to learn and succeed:
