Statement of Behavioural Principles
Hawthorn Primary – Statement of Behaviour Principles
The Education and Inspections Act 2006 and DfE Guidance “Behaviour and Discipline in Schools, January 2016” requires the governors to make a statement of general behaviour principles to guide the Headteacher in setting out measures in the School’s Pastoral and Behaviour Policy which aim to:
• promote good behaviour, self-discipline and respect;
• prevent bullying;
• ensure that pupils actively engage in their learning;
• regulate the conduct of pupils.
Practical application of these principles is the responsibility of the Headteacher
This statement has been adopted following consultation with the Headteacher, staff and pupils and will together with the Policy be reviewed on a three yearly basis, unless national changes indicate a review is required beforehand.
This statement is meant to promote the following part of our vision:
“ For our school to be a safe and harmonious community……“
Behaviour Principles to be included in measures within the Pastoral and Behaviour Policy:
Fair and consistent application of the Policy.
Children’s, staff and visitors’ rights and responsibilities to ensure they feel safe at all times at school.
The availability of pastoral support to pupils and parents.
Codes of Conduct for pupils and for parents which are known and understood.
The availability of a wide range of rewards which are consistently applied to encourage appropriate behaviour choices.
Sanctions for unacceptable behaviour which take into account an individual’s circumstances, are understood by staff, parents and pupils and consistently applied.
The Headteacher's right to permanently exclude a pupil where it is considered that their presence in school seriously harms their education or welfare or that of others in the school.
No toleration of violence, threatening behaviour or abuse by adults towards the school’s staff or pupils and the application of appropriate sanctions, including bans from the school premises and prosecution.
Staff receive training on the use of Care and Control Techniques.
The elimination of all forms of discrimination, harassment and bullying.
Promotion of the active engagement of all pupils in all learning opportunities.
