At St Peter’s we recognise the truth in the following statement:
GOOD BEHAVIOUR AND DISCIPLINE ARE THE KEY FOUNDATIONS OF GOOD EDUCATION. WITHOUT AN ORDERLY ATMOSPHERE, EFFECTIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING CANNOT TAKE PLACE
The Governors have agreed a Behaviour Policy which is available for parents to peruse. Within the school there is an agreement on behaviour both in the classroom and outside of it. This is demonstrated by the list of Golden Rules which are displayed throughout the school. To complement this we have developed a series of rewards to positively encourage children both with their work and behaviour (stickers, certificates, team points).We also have a series of sanctions so that children are very clear about what is and is not acceptable behaviour. This is all linked to GOLDEN TIME (the Behaviour Policy is available on request)
Good work and achievement is celebrated in Assembly times.
Certificates are given to children for their achievements through the week. We have found that a positive approach to discipline is both understood and appreciated by the children.In the event of consistently poor behaviour the procedures described in the Behaviour Policy will be enforced. We believe that both the school and parents should work together to maintain high standards of discipline and behaviour.In line with our Equal Opportunities policy we do not discriminate against anyone, be they staff or pupils, on the grounds of sex, race, disability, colour, religion, nationality, ethnic or national origins.
Resolving a problem
We make every effort to work harmoniously and we are pleased to discuss concerns with parents in order to find a resolution. If, however, despite all our efforts, you are still not satisfied then you can use the LA/School Complaints procedure. A comprehensive policy is available on request.
