The staff and Governors of Reedley Hallows Nursery School believe that high standards of behaviour are at the heart of a successful school and enable children to make the best possible progress in all areas of their learning.
The school’s primary concern is the safety, wellbeing and education of all children.
Children are held to high standards of attendance and punctuality.
All children, staff, governors and visitors have the right to feel safe, valued and respected, and to be free from disruption or bullying, including online. We are an inclusive school, and all children, staff and visitors are free from any form of discrimination. The school aims to create and maintain an atmosphere and ethos of equality and acceptance. The school will promote Reedley Hallows Nursery School values and behaviour expectations. Our policies reflect the duties of the Equality Act 2010.
The Behaviour Policy and associated behaviour expectations are shared with, and understood by children, parents and carers, governors and staff. There are high expectations for children's behaviour.
Children are given opportunities and are encouraged to support each other in the process of positive reinforcement and personal growth, learning and recognising good behaviour. Children are helped to take responsibility for their actions and to reflect on their choices.
Staff, governors, volunteers, and parents and carers, model good behaviour and set an excellent example to the children.
Families are involved in behaviour incidents to foster good relationships between the school and children's home life.
School rules are consistently applied across the school. Good behaviour is acknowledged and rewarded fairly. When sanctions are deemed necessary, they are in line with the Behaviour Policy, and should be applied fairly, consistently, proportionally, and reasonably, considering SEND, disability and the needs of vulnerable children, offering support as necessary.
The decision to use positive handling interventions will be based on individual circumstances and the professional judgement of trained staff.
The governing body also emphasises that violence or threatening behaviour will not be tolerated in any circumstances.
