Discipline

Discipline in the school is not a major issue and can most accurately be described as that which would be exercised by any caring parent/carer.

The majority of disciplinary issues are tackled in a positive manner, whereby staff focus on and celebrate individual strengths and achievements. Negative behaviour is discouraged unobtrusively to negate any attention seeking behaviour.

The school has developed a behaviour policy, which gives strategies for dealing with challenging behaviour and a mechanism for record keeping.

If a child requires a behaviour programme, parents and carers are asked to attend a support meeting to agree the aims of the programme. Parents/Carers are also asked to sign and keep a copy of the behaviour programme.

A copy of the school’s behaviour and discipline policy is available in the school office.
