Behaviour

OUR SMART CODE

Speak politely and listen carefully
Make school enjoyable for everyone
Act safely
Respect and care for each other
Tell someone your worries

With our SMART code, we encourage positive behaviour in school. Our approach is to look for and reward positive behaviour in line with our rewards list, which includes praise from adults and may include presentation of certificates and awards assemblies. We are proactive in supporting good behaviour, e.g. via the use of Circles of Friends and Buddies to help children develop the skills to help each other with social skills. Our School Council supports our principles of involving children in how our school operates. If behaviour is unacceptable, there are consequences and parents may be contacted, to work closely with the school to find a solution.  Bullying is not tolerated in any instance and we urge you to inform us if you suspect this is occurring.
