At Carrfield Primary Academy, our aim is that every member of our school community should feel valued and respected and that children should be able to behave in socially acceptable ways.

We are a caring community whose values are built upon mutual trust and respect for all.

Our school’s behaviour policy is designed to support the way in which all members of our school community live and work together. It aims to promote an environment in which everyone feels happy, safe and secure. This policy runs in conjunction with other school policies such as the anti-bulling policy and the safeguarding policy. School acknowledges its responsibility with regards to the Equality Act 2010, in respect of safeguarding and in respect of pupils with Special Educational Needs or disabilities (SEND).

To be socially acceptable, we believe that children should:

  • treat other children and adults with respect
  • speak politely to other people
  • have self confidence and high self-esteem.

To encourage this, staff will:

  • treat all children and adults with respect
  • speak politely to all other people
  • praise children’s efforts and achievements as often as they can, using a range of possible rewards
  • explain to children what they should have done or said when they get it wrong and use our Consequence Ladder
  • tell parents about their child’s efforts and achievements
  • avoid using critical or sarcastic language.

School rules are kept to a minimum and we expect all adults and children to follow them. The Golden Rules are then expanded by the children into their own set of class rules at the beginning of each academic year.

Our School Golden Rules

 The 4Cs

Take Care
Be Courteous
Show Common Sense

Our behaviour policy is applied consistently across school and children are able to see the inevitable results of positive and negative behaviours in displays in every classroom.
