At Charlton, we believe that positive behaviour, both in terms of attitudes to learning and personal conduct and relationships, is a crucial underpinning for learning and success.
Our School Behaviour Principles and guidance have been developed and agreed by the Governing Body, and take into account the relevant statutory guidance and related legislation. They underpin our Behaviour and Anti-Bullying Policies (click here to view policy), which set out in detail the roles, responsibilities and practice in this area.
- The purpose of these Principles, and the Policy they support, is to promote consistently positive attitudes to learning, and to help to develop our children as motivated, independent learners with high levels of resilience, self-belief, aspiration and attainment.
- All members of our community have the right to work, learn and play in a safe, stress-free and caring environment. Pupils are encouraged to have respect for themselves, their peers and adults, for the rights of others and for the school environment, and to take responsibility for their own behaviour. All adults should demonstrate genuine care and respect for every child, modelling the quality of relationships and standards of behaviour they expect from the children.
- Our Policy ensures fair, honest and consistent treatment for all members of our community, and takes into account the specific needs of individual children, including vulnerable pupils. It supports the School’s commitment to improving outcomes for all pupils, and promotes integrity and equality of opportunity throughout the School.
- Expectations and boundaries are widely understood. Positive reward and praise are the norm rather than the exception, but, where necessary, sanctions are clear and are applied fairly and consistently.
- The Policy demonstrates our commitment to appropriate behaviours and to our School values.
