At Glenfield Primary School, we believe that positive behaviour is an essential condition for effective learning and teaching. There is a strong ethos that everyone deserves kindness and respect at all times and that all members of the school community have the right to learn, teach and work in an environment which is safe, friendly, peaceful and fair. We aim to embed the Route to Resilience characteristics throughout all aspects of school life to provide the children with enthusiasm and curiosity to learn, support them to preserve, and reflect on new skills and promote independence and resilience.
We expect children to follow these Golden Rules at all times:
Be kind and helpful
Look after property
Keep hands, feet and unkind words to yourself
Listen to people
The school has a clear behaviour policy in place which is followed by all staff to ensure consistency. This can be found in the Policies section of the website.
Beyond Bullying Award
In 2020-2021, the school worked to renew it's Beyond Bullying award.
The 'Beyond Bullying Award' is a way for school's to gain accreditation and recognition for its achievements in embedding effective anti-bullying practice. It is valid for 3 years after which it must be renewed.
To achieve the award, all members of the school community worked together to send a clear message about bullying.
The School Council were heavily involved in this and one of the things they did was create a child-friendly anti-bullying policy to ensure all children were clear on the steps to take if they encountered bullying (see below). I'm sure you'll agree that the children did such a fantastic job with this. Our anti-bullying lead governor was very impressed and said it was clear, informative and engaging.
Please refer to the Policies section of the website to view the school's Anti-Bullying Policy.
