The school has had to review its behaviour policy in preparation for school reopening fully on 7th September.
Below are expectations that parents, carers and children will be expected to respect and adhere to:
Parents are expected to:
- Follow government guidance on social distancing and self-isolating.
- Follow school expectations for dropping off/collecting children.
- Support their child in adhering to the school rules.
- Inform the school of any changes in circumstances that may affect their child’s behaviour.
- Inform the school if their child, or a member of the household is displaying symptoms of the Coronavirus.
- Be prepared to collect their child immediately from school if your child has behaved in an unacceptable manner.
- Attend meetings (including communication over the phone), regarding their children when requested.
The school Rules
Pupils are expected to:
- Be kind, helpful and respectful towards everyone in school.
- Stay inside the recognised school boundaries.
- Walk quietly and sensibly under the direction of the class teacher. Where appropriate, keep to a distance of 2 metres.
- Work quietly in the classroom without disrupting others.
- Treat the school buildings and school property with respect, including only touching and using equipment on their desk, or equipment they have been directed to use.
- Refrain from behaving in a way that brings the school into disrepute, including when outside of school.
- Tell an adult if they are experiencing symptoms of coronavirus.
- Follow instructions on hygiene, such as handwashing, sanitising and following the ‘Catch it, bin it, kill it’ strategy.
- Keep to their class bubble, including break and lunchtimes.
In addition to this, each class devises its own rules. These will be appropriate to the age range of the class. They will be discussed and agreed with the children on their first day and referred to as appropriate. These rules should be phrased positively. E.g. always wash your hands for twenty seconds, stay seated at your desk, etc.
