Behaviour

St Alban’s C.E Primary and Nursery School is an inclusive school where we focus on the well-being and progress of every child and where all members of our community are of equal worth.

 

We believe that the Equality Act provides a framework to support our commitment to valuing diversity, tackling discrimination, promoting equality and fostering good relationships between people. It also ensures that we continue to tackle issues of disadvantage and underachievement of different groups.

 

We recognise that these duties reflect international human rights standards as expressed in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, and the Human Rights Act 1998.

 

The Equality Act 2010 was introduced to ensure protection from discrimination, harassment and victimisation on the grounds of specific characteristics (referred to as protected characteristics).

This means that schools cannot discriminate against pupils or their families, or treat them less favourably, because of their sex (gender), race, disability, religion or belief, gender reassignment, sexual orientation,  pregnancy or maternity, age, or marriage/civil partnership. 

 

Our aim is for children to develop responsible attitudes and self-discipline and grow up into confident, considerate young people. We want them to listen to others, be listened to and to be able to deal with conflict in a reasonable and non-aggressive manner.

We expect children to learn to behave well for all adults working with them in the school and in the wider community.

 

We expect all staff working with children to respond to them in a non confrontational way, to actively listen and to engage.

Lunchtime Rules:

  • We line up quietly
  • We walk in the dining hall
  • We finish what we are eating before we speak
  • We remember to say please and thank you
  • We put our hands up to ask to leave the hall.

 

We encourage good behaviour at lunch time through:

  • praise, verbal or written in front of peers, by all staff;
  • encouragement to continue good behaviour and work;
  • stickers, mini certificates and end of term certificates. The child’s name is written in the “golden book.” A letter is always sent home if a child’s name is mentioned in the golden book;
  • letters to parents highlighting consistent or improved good work and behaviour.

 

We encourage good behaviour in class through:

  • star of the day stickers;
  • star of the week stickers;
  • golden time at the end of the week;
  • putting names in the Golden book and being acknowledged in assembly;
  • receiving a reward from the Headteacher.

 

Some behaviour is unacceptable and will be dealt with by the Headteacher/Deputy Headteacher or senior teacher immediately.

Straight to head/deputy/senior teacher

 

  • a physical fight where children have physically hurt each other;
  • serious incidents of bullying;
  • racist name calling;
  • homophobic name calling;
  • Transgendar name calling;
  • swearing at an adult;
  • a serious incident of defiance towards a member of staff;
  • a senior member of staff will look after these children at lunchtime.

 

The following procedures will then follow:

  • the incident will be documented in our ‘red’ book;
  • parents will be informed;
  • parents will meet with the Headteacher.

 

If there is no improvement made, the following options may be considered:

 

  • behaviour management programme put in place;
  • behaviour contract;
  • involvement of outside agencies;
  • exclusion at lunch time;
  • in extreme cases, the child may be excluded from school.
