St Margaret’s C of E Primary School
Written Statement of Behaviour Principles
Written April 2022, to be reviewed September 2022
The statement of behaviour principles is informed by our school vision:
With God’s help we:
Flourish in all we do,
Achieve whatever we set our minds to,
Believe we are all unique and valued.
Governing bodies of maintained schools are required to provide headteachers with a statement of principles on which a school’s behaviour policy is based.
Our vision is underpinned by the following scripture reminding us to ‘shine like the stars’:
“Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.” Daniel 12:3
Our Christian values and PROUD statements underpin our learning and behavioural attitudes. We aim for our learners to be able to demonstrate these values in everything they do, both in and out of school providing a moral foundation for 21st century citizenship.
St Margaret’s School’s behaviour policy is based on Christian values and the belief that everyone is created in the image of God and is of infinite worth. Reconciliation and forgiveness are a key aspect of behaviour management in the school.
Reflecting our Christian vision, the following principles have been agreed:
The Governing Body believes that:
The Governing Body supports the school’s authority to consider exclusions, particularly those that are permanent, as the very last resort. It expects pupils, parents and carers to cooperate in order to maintain an orderly climate for learning.
The Governing Body emphasises that violence or threatening behaviour will not be tolerated in any circumstances.
This written statement of behaviour principles is reviewed every year and approved by the full Governing body.
