We aim for nothing less than exemplary behaviour and conduct for all of our children. We have a safe, calm, purposeful and productive learning environment and have achieved this by our absolute commitment to relationships and finding the very best in each unique child.
- All staff share high expectations of every child and promote positive behaviour through the consistent implementation of the school’s behaviour Policy ‘Good to be Green’, which includes a clear sequence of rewards and sanctions. Children’s achievements are celebrated every Friday with a range of awards.
- We listen and talk. Each child has two named adults that they know they can go to if they are worried, although ALL members of staff are responsible for helping our children feel safe and valued.
- We teach children the tools to resolve friendship issues and conflict through ‘Restorative Justice’ practice. We actively teach children, through a structured conversation, to understand their own feelings, how their actions have impacted others and how to put things right. Our Christian Vision and Values underpin our approach to behaviour. All staff are trained in Zones of Regulation.
When children are experiencing crisis and trauma, they may find it difficult to self-regulate in school. If this happens, we maintain our high expectations but add an additional layer of behaviour support through:
-‘Well-being and ‘behaviour support’ plans, in liaison with parents/carers and the child.
-A series of sessions with our trained Learning Mentor.
-Liaising with Camden’s Primary Learning Support Service( PLSS).
-Referring the child to CAMHS.
-Referring the child to Camden’s Primary Inclusion Forum for advice.
