Didsbury Road Primary School Behaviour Policy

October 2014

Introduction At Didsbury Road Primary School, we believe that every member of the school community has a responsibility for behaviour and everyone has the right to feel valued and respected. Children develop into responsible learners and members of the community through experiencing a school ethos which promotes the rights and dignity of each individual. We believe that encouragement and praise are vital in helping children to develop a positive self-image. Each child should be valued as an individual and as part of the wider community. It is our belief that good behaviour needs to be consistently and positively encouraged and valued. Aims This policy aims to:  Provide a framework for the development of a positive, whole school ethos of good behaviour  Define the expectations we have for each member of the school community  Provide guidance on a consistent approach to positive behaviour management  Provide guidance and support for staff and pupils when dealing with inappropriate behaviour Objectives  For all children to be happy, caring and confident learners  To have high expectations of all children  For children to learn the difference between acceptable and unacceptable behaviour  To promote respect and consideration for others and for property within school  For children to respect themselves and others, valuing diversity of culture, belief and opinion Relationship to other policies This policy should be read in conjunction with polices on Anti-bullying, safeguarding, Equality and Diversity and SEND. We also have a more detailed behaviour policy which outlines statutory requirements. (Didsbury Road Primary School Behaviour and Discipline Policy) Roles and responsibilities The Headteacher will work with all members of the school community to ensure high standards of behaviour at all times. Behaviour will be monitored in KS1 by the Assistant Headteacher and in KS2 by the Deputy Headteacher. It is expected that all staff will:  Establish and follow class rules with their class  Ensure that all children are emotionally and physically safe in school  Make clear, in a positive and constructive way, the behaviour that is expected of children, and what is unacceptable  Apply rules and sanctions consistently , proportionately and in a manner appropriate to the needs of the child  Challenge any unacceptable behaviour  Provide children with a good role model  Work in partnership with parents or carers to find a constructive solution to any situation which is causing concern

It is expected that children will:  Show care, respect and consideration for others and for the school environment  Listen when others are talking  Follow their class rules It is expected that Parents/ Carers will:  Praise and encourage their child’s efforts and achievements.  Ensure that their child attends school and arrives on time.  Contact the school if their child is absent or will be late.  Inform the school of any events which may affect their child’s behaviour in school, so that it can be dealt with sensitively  Support their child in behaving appropriately  Support the school if sanctions are applied to their child for inappropriate behaviour It is expected that the Governing Body will:  Support the school in its efforts to address issues related to behaviour management  Monitor the effectiveness of the school’s behaviour policy School vision Our school vision is very important to us. It defines who we are and how we behave towards others and is central to all that we do. Our school vision states: We are happy, caring confident learners, preparing for our future. As individuals or as part of a team, we are achievers who have a positive outlook on life. We have self-belief and know that we can achieve whatever we want to. We enjoy overcoming new challenges. We always ensure that:  We are kind, caring and positive towards others.  We show appreciation and give compliments.  We respect each other and feel valued.  We value and support the efforts of everyone.  We support and celebrate those who promote our rich and varied curriculum.  We accept advice and receive support positively.  We know how to have fun and celebrate! Encouraging a whole school ethos towards positive behaviour All members of staff use a consistent approach when dealing with behaviour, allowing for the needs of the individual. Praise and positive language are used, and good behaviour is encouraged and rewarded at all times. We use the restorative approach to behaviour management when resolving a conflict. We ask the child the following questions, for example:  Can you tell me what happened?  How are you feeling now?  What needs to happen to put things right? Rewards for positive behaviour include:  Praise  Stickers/ smiley faces  Class star  Kindness awards  Housepoints  Headteacher’s award  Talking to parents 2

Dealing with inappropriate behaviour When a child’s behaviour falls below an acceptable standard, a range of sanctions will be used. Through working closely and openly with children and their families, it is our aim to resolve behavioural issues at the earliest possible stage. We consider the following behaviour to be unacceptable:  Racism, homophobia or sexism  Bullying  Name calling  Physical aggression  Refusal to work, co-operate or follow instructions  Refusal to obey school rules  Continual shouting out, interrupting or talking excessively in lessons  Continually distracting or provoking other children  Being disrespectful or inconsiderate towards others  Destruction of school property or property belonging to others  Using inappropriate language Staff regularly take part in Team Teach training which guides staff on safe and acceptable forms of physical contact with pupils. This is used on the rare occasions when a child is in distress or needs to be restrained in order to keep themselves and others safe. Sanctions Unacceptable behaviour will be dealt with by the class teacher in the first instance. The incident will be logged in the class behaviour log. This is the first written record of unacceptable behaviour. Three entries on the log in one week will result in the child being sent to the Deputy Headteacher/ Assistant Headteacher. Each class’s behaviour log is regularly monitored by the Deputy Headteacher and Assistant Headteacher. The table below sets out the sanctions we use. The sanction applied will be proportional to the behaviour and age of the child and incremental. For sanctions used for more serious behaviour please see the Behaviour and Discipline Policy. Inappropriate behaviour Parents/ Carers will be informed if the behaviour is persistent Verbal warning Name written on the board Behaviour log filled in Losing part of playtime or dinnertime Time out in another classroom Sent to Deputy Headteacher/ Assistant Headteacher Sent to Headteacher

Children with social, emotional or behavioural needs The school’s SENDCO will work with children, families and teachers to ensure that full consideration and support is given to any child who has specific needs which may affect their behaviour. The school will work alongside outside agencies to ensure that the appropriate level of support is given and advice sought when appropriate. (See SEND Policy)

This policy will be reviewed on an annual basis. 3
