For a full copy of the behaviour policy, please see the link at the bottom of this page (NB: This includes an addendum regarding Covid19)
All staff use every available opportunity to enhance children’s self-esteem. Staff, parents and the wider community encourage all children to adhere to the school rules. Children are taught to work co-operatively and form sound, respectful relationships. Every member of staff in school has a personal interest in our children and we all seek to educate them to have respect and concern for everyone in our community. We expect excellent behaviour and our children are taught to be polite and courteous. A copy of this policy is available for anyone to read on our website and is available from school. We use a wide range of rewards for good behaviour. Our aim is to raise children’s self-esteem and to enable them to develop and exercise self-discipline and respect for others. We expect children to behave sensibly, thoughtfully and with care for themselves and others in the school community.
We are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all our pupils so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere.
All our rules are based on:
The safety of everybody in school
Respect for others and their property
Taking care of the school buildings.
1. Everybody is to treat everyone with respect and courtesy all of the time.
2. Children must walk inside the building.
3. Children are to be friendly and kind to each other, play non-aggressive games and not play fight.
4. Children should arrive at and leave school in an appropriate and orderly manner.
5. Children should be proud of the school and treat the building and its grounds with care and respect
‘Pupils behaviour is very good and there is a calm working atmosphere in classes. .’ Ofsted 2018
At Weston Rhyn we believe that all of our children are responsible for their behaviour. We therefore encourage all of our children to behave responsibly.
Rather than focusing on punishments and sanctions for misbehaviour all the time, we prefer to be positive about, praise and reward good behaviour.
We have a very positive house point system for which the children actively strive to contribute to and all members of staff are encouraged to award stickers, certificates and rewards for positive and thoughtful behaviour. This includes our Achievement Assembly every Friday in which children are rewarded for a variety of things including caring and respectful behaviour.
Please refer to our Behaviour Policy for more information on the type of rewards and sanctions we give to our children.
There are occasions, however, when we do have to act and respond to unacceptable behaviour. However, it is important for the children to know what they have done wrong, understand that their behaviour has brought about consequences or sanctions, know that such behaviour is to stop and understand how to make positive choices next time.
