ETHOS: The Positive Behaviour Policy at Bishop John Robinson is a statement of good practice that covers all aspects of our school and contributes to the development and maintenance of good behaviour and a positive relationship based on our core values of Trust, Compassion and Forgiveness. All members of the school are expected to maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning with courtesy and mutual respect as basic requirements.
AIMS of the policy
- To help provide a nurturing school environment in order to facilitate effective learning, teaching and play based on mutual respect and positive relationships
- To implement recommendations from the EEF Guidance report ‘Improving Behaviour in Schools’ (2019)
- To support staff to promote positive behaviour and give guidance for managing behaviour
- To reflect the Vision and Christian values set out in the mission statement
- To encourage positive approaches to Social, Emotional and Mental health (SEMH)
- To encourage adherence to the 6 principles of nurture
Christian Values: As a Church School we promote Christian Values as a way of supporting behaviour. Children are rewarded for overtly displaying these values. Adult conversations around behaviour should - where possible – reflect the Christian Values of the school. For example, talking about FORGIVENESS when children are in conflict.
