Attendance & Behaviour
The Governing body, staff and pupils are committed to creating a caring, friendly and safe environment which encourages and reinforces good behaviour and the fostering of positive attitudes.
We have an active, positive behaviour policy. This means we seek to praise your child for the good things that are done, and highlight them as being of value. We find this leads, in almost all circumstances, to our children being responsible for a high standard of good behaviour.
Every child in school is expected to learn responsibility for their own behaviour, and how their actions affect others. Your children are encouraged to develop a caring attitude and positive behaviour is reinforced regularly to encourage others to adopt the same principles.
The children have an individual award system as well as a class award system.
If inappropriate behaviour does take place, appropriate sanctions are taken by staff to stop it. However, should it continue, you would be informed, and asked to come into school to discuss strategies to support our behaviour policy.
Absence & Illness
Our school community enjoys excellent attendance, but if your child is ill, it is best to give them time off to regain full health.
When your child is ill and absent from school, please inform the school before 9:15 am. This is a more immediate way of ensuring our children are safe at all times than sending a note of absence on the day they return. If you do not inform the school, then an unauthorised absence has to be recorded.
If your child is ill during school time, whenever possible parents will be contacted so the child can be taken home, as school is not the best place for an unwell child.
