Behaviour and Discipline


At Battyeford School we believe:
• all children have the right to be safe and happy in school
• all children have the right to the best possible education to enable them to
reach their full potential
• that the promotion of positive behaviour management is a partnership
between school, pupils and parents/carers
• that all members of that partnership deserve to be treated fairly, listened to
and valued as individuals

Our Aims are:
• to promote a positive ethos and climate in the school

• to promote self-esteem through success, self-discipline and positive
• to ensure that the school's expectations and strategies, including Growth
Mindset are widely known and understood
• to encourage the involvement of both home and school in the implementation
of this policy

So that:-
Children will become good citizens and members of their community by
• treating others with respect, kindness, courtesy and consideration
• treating belongings and property with respect

The Golden Rule - Stop, Think Do the Right Thing
Positive Behaviour Management is a whole school approach involving all the children and all the members of staff. The Golden Rule focuses on good behaviour and set out to ensure that children who work hard and behave well will be recognised and
rewarded in a variety of ways. The Golden Rule operates in all areas throughout school.
