Behaviour, Safety & Well-being


Everyone has the right to feel happy, safe and cared for.

Promoting and encouraging positive behaviour in our school is something we value highly and we are always striving to improve upon.

The school has a calm atmosphere which is highly conducive to learning. Our pupils are respectful, well-mannered and kind. All of our staff work hard to ensure the school is a safe and happy place.

All staff, children and visitors to our school are expected to follow our Golden Rules which are:

  • We are gentle
  • We are kind and helpful
  • We listen
  • We are honest
  • We work hard
  • We look after our environment

Our Golden Rules are promoted and praised by all staff throughout the day, but also through class circle times, whole school assemblies, displays, class reward charts and individual rewards.

Well-being and Safety:

We have an excellent Personal, Social HEalth Education (PSHE) curriculum which provides children with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work. We have been awarded the Healthy Schools Plus award and we have been a national pilot school for the   E-Bug project, which involved working with Public Health England to reduce antibiotic use and improve hygiene in our school.


E-safety takes a high priority across the curriculum. We ensure that all children and their families have plenty of information about online safety to keep them safe both in and out of school. All pupils and their parents sign an acceptable use policy to ensure everyone understands the importance of this and agrees to abide by the expectations of the school.
