West Street Community Primary School and Nursery


Aims and expectations

It is a primary aim of our school that every member of the school community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring, inclusive community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all. The school behaviour policy is therefore designed to support the way in which all members of the school can live and work together in a supportive way. It aims to promote an environment where everyone feels happy, safe and secure enabling children to become positive, responsible and increasingly independent members of the school community.

The school has a number of school rules, but the primary aim of the behaviour policy is not a system to enforce rules. It is a means of promoting good relationships, so that people can work together with the common purpose of helping everyone to learn. This policy supports the school community in aiming to allow everyone to work together in an effective and considerate way.

We expect every member of the school community to behave in a considerate way towards others and will respond to any member of our school community who behaves inappropriately.

Behaviour out of school that brings the school into disrepute or impacts upon relationships and behaviour in school will be dealt with in line with behaviour within school.

We are an inclusive school and strongly believe in individuality. As an “open” school we aim to fully engage with parents and families, offering support where needed, seeking advice and opinions and ensuring the best opportunities for the children in our care.
