It is a principal aim of our school that every member of the school community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all. The school's behaviour policy is therefore designed to support the way in which all members of the school can live and work together in a supportive way. It aims to promote an environment where everyone feels happy, safe and secure.
The school has well established Golden Rules and a shared set of values which underpin expectations and ethos. It is a means of promoting nurturing relationships, so that people can work together with the common purpose of helping everyone to learn. This policy supports the school community in aiming to allow everyone to work together in an effective and considerate way.
Our Golden Rules are:
• WE TREAT OTHER PEOPLE WITH RESPECT
• WE LOOK AFTER OUR SCHOOL
• WE ARE KIND, POLITE AND WELL MANNERED
• WE SET A GOOD EXAMPLE TO EVERYONE
• WE SUPPORT EACH OTHER
Our values are known as 'The Summerlea Seven' and are as follows:
(Three Rs - within 'HEART')
We will treat all children fairly and apply this behaviour policy in a consistent way.
This policy aims to help children to grow in a safe and secure environment, and to become positive, responsible and increasingly independent members of the school community and society.
The school rewards good behaviour, as it believes that this will develop an ethos of kindness and co-operation. This policy is designed to promote excellent behaviour, using positive discipline.
