We believe that everyone at St Peter and St Paul Church Primary school has the right to be safe, to be treated with respect, to be valued and to learn.
Pupils are expected to:
● Behave in an orderly and self-controlled way
● Follow instructions
● Show respect to all members of staff and each other
● In class, make it possible for all pupils to learn
● Move quietly around the school
● Treat school property with respect
● Wear the correct uniform at all times
● Accept sanctions when given
● Refrain from behaving in a way that does not allow them to ‘Let Their Light Shine’, including when outside of school and representing the school in the wider community.
Staff are responsible for:
● Creating a calm and safe environment for all pupils; this will include embedding these WALKTHRUs:
● Establishing and maintaining clear boundaries of acceptable pupil behaviour
● Implementing the behaviour policy consistently
● Communicating the school’s expectations, routines, values and standards through teaching behaviour and in every interaction with pupils
● Modelling positive behaviour
● Providing a personalised approach to the specific behavioural needs of particular pupils
● Considering their own behaviour on the school culture and how they can uphold school rules and expectations
● Recording behaviour incidents on our St Peter and St Paul report of a concern pro forma and/or completing personalised behaviour logs
● Challenging pupils to meet the school’s expectations
If you would like further information regarding our approach to behaviour, please read our behaviour policy below.
For the past two years, St Peter and St Paul Church Primary School has participated in the United Against Bullying (UAB) programme. The programme is focused on reducing bullying and improving wellbeing for pupils and aligns with our expectations that everyone at St Peter and St Paul has the right to be safe, to be treated with respect, to be valued and to learn.
The school council lead on our work for the programme, supporting Mrs Burgess to complete a yearly audit, review our school policy, and gather important data from pupils to track what is going well and what could be improved.
In 2022-23, St Peter and St Paul was awarded United Against Bullying SILVER School status. We are incredibly proud of this achievement.
