Behaviour and Attitudes
Wilden Church of England Primary School believes that, in order to facilitate high quality teaching and learning, acceptable courteous behaviour must be demonstrated in all aspects of school life.
The school is committed to:
- Encouraging a calm, purposeful and happy atmosphere within the school
- Fostering positive, caring attitudes towards everyone where every child’s achievements, at all levels, are acknowledged and valued
- Promoting self-esteem, self-discipline, proper regard for authority and creating strong, positive and warm relationships based on mutual respect
- Promoting a culture of praise and encouragement in which all children can flourish
- Creating a fair and consistent approach to behaviour and discipline throughout the school based on Values Education and positive behaviour reinforcement
- Providing an environment free from disruption, violence, discrimination, bullying and any form of harassment.
At Wilden Church of England Primary School, we are committed to ensuring that our practice allows children to grow as individuals feel confident when faced with challenges in all aspects of life, be respectful to themselves and of others and to learn patience and tolerance. We believe it to be vital that children are encouraged to become independent and resilient learners, who achieve to the very best of their abilities.
Aims for behaviour
We have a number of practices and procedures in place that enable us to:
- Support children to manage their own emotions and develop a positive sense of self.
- Teach children to be respectful towards others
- Ensure a positive-choices-based approach to behaviour is maintained throughout all parts of the school day and at anywhere they are identifiable as a pupil of the school, including when off site or on school visits
- Celebrate achievements, good behaviour and attitudes
- Build children’s self-esteem, resilience and capabilities in order to become confident and self-assured individuals
- Ensure that all children and members of the school community are treated fairly, consistently and sensitively
- Actively involve parents/carers and allow clear communication
